This postcard shows Kaiser Franz Josef (1830-1916) during the 60th year of his reign (1848-1908). The old emperor is framed by abstract black and white designs that feature portraits of his Vienna and Hapsburg castles, as well as laurel and oak leaves. It was mailed and displays a special Austrian Empire Postage Stamp featuring Franz Josef as he looked in 1848. It is printed onto the postcard, along with a special stamp of the Hapsburg Crown dated 1914. Salutations for the anniversary appear in Italian and German. At least part of the note on the back is in German.
