Rare California Local Tied On

Rare 1909 Santa Barbara US Local Christmas Seal tied on postcard

So far, this seal is more rare mint than tied on. With less than five known copies, still many collectors would prefer a tied on. The 1909 Santa Barbara US local TB seal was not discovered until the late 1970's. The same seal exists with other California city names. This was discovered on eBay. Unfortunately for the seller, the primary illustration was a rather ordinary picture postcard.
