Vintage 1916 Postcard - A Christmas Wish
for item Postcard20
This adorable postcard was intended as a Christmas wish, however, the young sender mailed it to late. The postmark is dated January 2, 1916, from Colorado.
The card reads:
A Christmas Wish. At the home table on this day, How well I'd like to be, So when you carve the turkey, Just eat a slice for me.
The card has darkened some with age and the upper right corner has a small bend. The back side has a stain underneath the nice 1 cent stamp.
Though not in mint condition, it is remarkable that it has survived over 85 years of handling. The stamp and postmark would make a nice addition to a stamp collection.
Please include $1.00 for shipping in the U.S. Add an additional $1.30 if you want the item insured.
