Born in Indiana, retired from U.S. Navy after 20 years, and a retired letter carrier (Post Office) living in Washington State.
Collect postcards and bimetallic coins and too many other things. The postcards in my collection are linen cards from the 1930's thru 50's with a rough texture, they were unique to the U.S. I also collect Real Photo Postcards (RPPC) of my local area.
Have 2 boxer dogs. Active with the Boy Scouts.
I have not received nearly as many cards as I have sent so there must be a lot of lost cards out there. Ask and I will register them. also note the U.S. Postal Service sprays a barcode at the bottom of cards. I often have trouble reading ID numbers and names along the bottom but the search feature does not let me down.
If you use postage stamps just drop the card in the mail, however if you can use a postage meter or other postal label please use a envelope. I especially like meters with slogans.
I have Starbucks gift cards available, they are free to take so if you want some let me know.
If you are sending cards to the United States our post office sprays a barcode along the bottom of the card often covering up the senders name or ID.
I would like:
