The green American Beauty backs are among the most distinctive and attractive of all the T206 back advertisements.  Cards with the AB reverse are noticeably thinner than the rest of the T206s, the prevailing theory being that the cards needed to be cut more narrowly to fit in the cigarette packs.  Such cards are more susceptible to centering problems and miscuts.  In the case of this card of Jean Dubuc, the front centering is particularly strong, with corner wear (particularly the corner crease at the lower left) being primarily responsible for the grade.  The aforementioned centering issue can be seen on the reverse, with a very slight miscut on the right border clipping away a small piece of the embellishment on the very edge of the card.

The American Beauty 350 "with frame" reverse is characterized by T206Resource.com as ranking 19th of 37 in terms of scarcity.  Still, just five cards of Jean Dubuc with American Beauty backs have been graded by SGC, of 148 Dubuc T206s graded.
