This postcard dated 1923 with SG 101 4 mils with 3 stamps, one of which is bisect. It looks genuinely postally used, can anybody shed some light on the matter

More an observation then a reply. While the external postcard rate to Europe was 10 mils, which is the rate shown if the 4 mil bisect is taken as 2 mil, the printed matter rate was only 4mil. Now postcards without a message other then a simple greeting and signature were treated as printed matter. if this was the case then the bisect is irrelevant hence there being no need to invalidate it.
