Hi Virginia,

My name is ***** ***** I'm happy to help.

Post card collecting is a popular hobby. People collect different topics according to their interests.

Linen postcards are more modern that those issued at the turn of the 20th century. They retail for 50 cents to $1 each. Most of the others range from $1 to $3 each. The most valuable ones have dates in the first quarter of the 20th century.

I hope this answer has been helpful to you, Virginia.

If you have any further questions or problems concerning your answer, please let me know.

If you would like to work with me on further questions you might have, it would be a pleasure to work with you again. All you have to do is put my name (Judith) at the beginning of your question.

I need your positive rating! Could you very kindly rate my services (with the stars or "accept" button) as this is how I get paid by JustAnswer, at no extra cost to you. We can still continue to communicate here on this thread after you do.

Thank you so much!
