Pick the Pickaninnies' Post Card Puzzle

This antique postcard (copyright 1907) is an amazingly well-designed folding puzzle.  It has only six flaps to fold over in the right order, yet it is frustratingly difficult and misleading.  The pictures are politically incorrect, as Mammie is saying, "Show me all dem eleben pickaninnies at one time. I don't want to see no white trash."  In other words, no white kids should be showing through the holes once all the flaps are folded over.  Sorry, it is partly cut off in the picture since it didn't all fit on the scanner, but it is complete.  I've seen it listing for over $100 in a major antique price-guide.   I'll sell it for $85.
