    Question Is this Waffen SS family photo original or a post war copy?

    Hello all! I recently bought this photo and received it in the mail. It is very blurry but I was ok with that but when I turned it over I saw that it was a cropped Agfa postcard. So I asked myself "Was this printed on old Agfa paper post WW2 or was it just trimmed by the owner at some time. What are your thoughts? Thanks!

    It was a normal thing for many people back in the earlier era's to have their photos printed on postcards, so that they could share the image with family and friends. I have several postcard photos in the family album from the turn of the century and abit later.

    Thank you Wagriff! Was it common to trim it this much though?

    Sure was. Usually, they would trim them to make them fit into a frame or photo album page space. They would trim off unneeded background scenery and sometimes an unwanted person or 2 as well.
