126 antique postcard 1910

Raised, embossed image with gold ink. Post marked Sugar Creek, Ohio 7/11/1910.

127 antique postcard 1910

Raised, embossed image with gold ink. Post marked Sugar Creek, Ohio 6/15/1910.  This one and the one above it were sent to  Miss Venone Wagner in New Philadelphia, Ohio.

128 antique postcard 1908

Series No. 176, B.B. London, Printed in Saxony. Post marked Springfield, Ohio 12/23/1908.  How did people these days get so obsessed with using red and green?

129 antique postcard

P.B.F. Serie 7650, not mailed. Printed in Germany.

130 antique postcard

No company name, series 6014, not mailed.  I think I now officially like any postcard where a bird is sent to deliver greetings.  Prior postcards have bluebirds doing the bidding, but this one is a dove.

134 antique postcard

Not mailed; rubber stamped a 3¢ sales price on the back.

131 antique postcard 1945

Pub. by Smith News Store, Plymouth, Mass. Tichnor Bros., Inc. Boston, Mass.  Post marked 8/24/1945 from South Duxbury, Massachusetts.

132 antique postcard

Mailed but the stamp was stripped, so I lost the post mark.  Metallic silver ink background is very shiny.
