The first nicely embossed vintage valentine greeting post card is in good condition, postmarked February 13, 1912 and bears a one cent Washington Green used postage stamp. As were the cards in this era, it was produced in Germany with a series number 2426. Mae H. sent this greeting to Master Alexander Drysdale in Bennington Vermont in care of R. Drysdale.
A second greeting of love is designed to look like a book with raised gold embellishments. The verse says, "May Heavenly Peace, without surcease, Thy Joy Increase." At the bottom of the window oval, which depicts a mountainous lake, says, "A Greeting of Love. This card is in fair condition with the lower left corner peeled back about 1/4". Most people in this era wrote in pencil which dims over time. The valentine greeting was sent to Mrs. Etta Dunham in Bangor, Main. Postmarked in Carmel August 4 1910, the card also bears a used Washington Green 1 cent stamp.
Lastly, the Dutch boy is saying to the Dutch girl in the window, "Did vun little bird tell you dat I luff you, yet?" A little bird perched on a tree beneath the window. This postcard is also in fair condition with the corners showing age and storage wear. There is not a stamp on the back so I assume this card was passed on to Miss Edith Flereu of Rockford, Illinois by hand. This card was written in ink which has not faded. Also made in Germany, this card is series 156.
Postcards are fun to collect and affordable. But there are many other uses for these pre-1930 postcards: genealogy one name surname study, designs for your card making hobby, scrapbooking embellishments, and gift-giving.
