As is typical of this era of card, there is no description on the back. The card has what appears at first to be a reddish stain on it. Closer examination, particularly at the point where the rocker meets the cradle footboard, clearly indicates this is in fact a registration error. This means that the color red was misaligned with the card when passed through the printing press, applying the color too far to the left.

This card was used, and is postmarked 24 December 1920.
