Default Does this card look trimmed?

Don't have this in hand yet and just wondering if you think it looks trimmed. The centering looks odd. Any opinions? And if it isn't what do you think it will grade? Thanks guys.

I am pretty certain that the card is not trimmed. Don't know what grade it would be. Issues with edges, centering and black ink appears out of register from blue, red and yellow ink.

No evidence of trimming; just a bad factory cut.

Thank you very much. Somewhat New to vintage and after lurking these boards reading all the scams you can never be sure. I am just replacing a few of my poor condition Luke Easter cards (pc) with some nicer examples. Would be nice if I could get a PSA 5 on this but I suck at grading.

centering being off is common in vintage

I once had a few hundred '52s that I recently sold. Many of the cards were very pooly cut...heck paper stock even varied greatly from card to card! I would not say the card is trimmed but thats simply my opinion.
