It cost one cent to mail a postcard from the time postcard rates were introduced in 1898 until January 1, 1952, when the cost doubled to two cents. Prior to 1898, postcards were charged at the same rate as regular mail, which happened to also be one cent. There was also a brief period from November 1917 to July 1919 where postcards cost two cents to send.

Unfortunately, there really isn't a way to narrow it down further without a postmark or an idea of what the image on the postcard is.
