ET&WNC Excursion Flyer, maybe

flyer

This flyer is 8.5 x 14.  I bought this at a local flea market.  The dealer had maybe 10 of them.  He said they had come from an ephemera auction lot and was asking $20, firm, for one of them.  I walked away first, but, intrigued, I came back and bought this one out of curiosity.  Is it real? The paper appears to be brown tinted, not aged.  On the back, down at the bottom, in pencil, is “3.00”, which probably means some other dealer thought it was only worth that.  Under a 10-power loupe, the print looks more like melted toner that it does ink, though I didn’t see any toner splatter (note to all: I’m not an expert at this).  One other point: the morning I bought this was damp and foggy.  The young man helping the dealer was holding one of these when some water dripped onto it.  He didn’t seem to care.  If I had been holding ephemera worth $20, I would have cared, for sure.
Since it references the movie short “Tennessee Tweetsie” that came out in 1939, the first year after that with Sundays on the 14th and 28th is 1941.  That would be when the original, if this is a fake, was printed.
Anybody know anything about these flyers?
