    While looking for the tea and cig cards to fullfill a request, I found that I had put a number of post cards pages with cards in the same binder.
    1903 and 1905are the years,

    Stamps are in great shape considering they are cancelled and are 108 and 110 years old! They were in a stack of cavern post cards I bought 35 years ago.

    I love these cathedral postcards, they are real treasures. You are right about their being in real good shape considering they are a hundred years old. Thanks for posting Circus!

    Don't know if I have any more that are that old, will have to look for the other binder as I don't know if the admin wants post cards with no stamps? but if i find some old ones or sent ones I will post them. For somebody that didn't start out to collect post cards, but the subject matter the post cards had on them I guess I should have collected the post cards!
    :rolleyes:

    Very nice cards, Circus. Go ahead and post ,even without stamps. Its related to this forum. You can also post to the general forum for non stamp items. We're very relaxed here and enjoy seeing your assortment of collections.

    Very nostalgic stamps you have here! Interesting and wonderful indeed. :) Nice to see them here. I have always been fascinated with vintage postcards from different countries and I believe they are also fun to collect like stamps.
