Change the Date Novelty Congratulations Postcard 1908
1 Change the Date Novelty Congratulations Postcard 1908
Unknown 1909 Very good 
This is a truly unique postcard, as there are two operating wheels which allow you to change both the month and the day. Both work very well, but you have to grasp the slim edges with your nails to do it. Quite a novelty and very pretty in pastel. The card was mailed with no message to Bertha Randall of 310 W/. Smith Road, Medina, Ohio -- right here when I am! Only fault is an erasure at front of green mailbox where name of sender had been.

John Brown Homestead, Akron, Ohio Postcard 1913
3 John Brown Homestead, Akron, Ohio Postcard 1913
1913 Very Good 
Very pretty depiction of an Akron, Ohio landmark. The card is very nice in its plastic sleeve and retains a one cent stamp which covers the manufacturer's name. Only fault is a small bit of bleed-through from the postmark visible above the roof of the house - minor. The card was sent to Lodi, Ohio and the message (with errors) is as follows: "Am feeling fine. How is the weather their? I have my sweater coat on in the house. Bertha and Charlie went to Cleveland this morning. I will half to work Monday night. Sat. night was a busy one. Be home Sat. night some time. Arthur K."

Patriotic Postcard My Country Tis of Thee Stars and Scroll
4 Patriotic Postcard My Country Tis of Thee Stars and Scroll
Germany International Art Publishing Co. Unknown 
What a cutie for the Fourth of July, or even Memorial Day. It looks like the work of Ellen Clapsaddle and there are attribtions of this is in the marketplace, but I have gone over it thoroughly with a magnifying glass and cannot find a signature to confirm it. Nonethleess it's a sweet image with the banner reading the first few lines of "My Country 'Tis of Thee." Love the way the little patriot is standing on a pile of stars! Great graphic. The card has a divided back and was never maile. Penciled message reads "Bertha From Madeleine." Tiny bit of corner wear, but otherwise crisp.

Postcard Flamingo With Actual Feathers (early 20th century)
6 Postcard Flamingo With Actual Feathers (early 20th century)
Unknown Location Unknown publisher No date, but early 20th century Good-plus 
This is without question the most ephemeral postcard ever. The body of the flamingo is covered with a variety of actual feathers in an array of colors. The card is very nice overall, but does show a few tiny soil marks at the area of the neck just next to the feathers. I don't dare try to do anything about it for fear of damage.Tthe only other fault is a small flat crease to left lower corner. Card has a one cent postage stamp, but it was never marked. There's no indication of date, but I do know one thing that helps. The recipient is Bertha Randall -- I had a lot of cards sent to her and almost all had a 1900-1912 postmark. Card will arrive in a brand new plastic sleeve.

11 To Fill your Heart With Joy and Bliss Postcard Little girl with Violets (Floral Missives -- Tuck)
Raphael Tuck & Sons Very Good 
The greeting here is meant for Valentine's Day, but could be sent anytime -- "To fill your heart with joy and bliss, Love's greeting, dear, I send with this." Pretty card was published by the great Raphael Tuck & Son (Art Publishers to their Majesties, the King and Queen) as part of Post Card Series No. 11 entitled "Floral Missives." The card is embossed and the rim of the oval frame surrounding the little flower girl is raised. The card was not sent through the mail,but is penciled on the divided back thus, "To Bertha From Madeline." I know because of other cards from this same collection that the recipient was Bertha Randall, Medina, Ohio, likely around 1910

To My Heart's Elect Cupid Flying on a Key Blue Foral Wreath 1910 Medina, Seville, Ohio
12 To My Heart's Elect Cupid Flying on a Key Blue Foral Wreath 1910 Medina, Seville, Ohio
New York & Berlin International Art Publishing Company 1910 Very good 
Very pretty card in pastels and very imaginative too. The card is embossed and clean and attractive. It was sent Feb. 11th, 1910 to Bertha Randall, Medina Ohio from her cousin who lived in next-door Seville. The message, written in pencil, reads, "Dear Cousin, Will be there with bells on. Will get there about 4:10 or 4:20. Mabel." This is an interesting message for two reasons. One is the slangy "be there with bells on", a comment which remains part of the vernacular today. The other reason is the specific times quoted. Mabel must have been taking the interurban from Seville, Ohio to Medina, Ohio

Unknown Unknown circa 1910 Very good 
The perfect card for people who don't like to write messages! This one actually has one and it was mailed from Seville, Ohio to Bertha Randall of Medina, Ohio -- not too far! It reads with misspelling, "Are you coming with your Ma when she comes. Ma doesn't feal quite herself this morn. (last sentence unreadable)" The sender may be Nelle Horn, as this name is written in the upper left corner. Card is undated but clearly. given furnishings and clothing on the front, it dates from around 1910. The card is in great conditon save browning to corners from having been kept in an album.

Vintage Postcard, Calling Cards, Victorian die-cuts Hands and Flowers
15 Vintage Postcard, Calling Cards, Victorian die-cuts Hands and Flowers
Germany Unknown 1910 Very good 
This is such a pretty grouping of a vintage postcard, two calling cards, and two Victorian die-cuts, brought together by a common theme -- hands and flowers. The silvery postcard was sent to Bertha Randall of Medina, Ohio in 1910 from C.W.R. who wrote the flamboyant message upside-down. The two calling cards appear to have been homemade by affixing die-cuts to an already printed card. The larger one is 2"x4" and the smaller 1-3/4"x3-1/2". The die cut design is lifted up to reveal the names -- Mr.& Mrs R.H. Fombaugh and Maggie Fombaugh, respectively. The areas around the designs have toned, but otherwise they're lovely. The loose die-cutes show evidence of glue at back, but only to one end which means they likely decorated a card as well. They measure 2"x3-1/4" and relay two different messages.

18 Keith,Elmer The American Rifleman Magazine June,1931 (Elmer Keith)
Washington D.C. The National Rifle Association 1931 Vol. LXXIX No.6 soft cover Good-plus 
Oversized magazine which is clean as a whistle inside. The only real fault is two small nicks and some mild soil to bottom edge of front cover. I cleaned it with a document pad, but didn't dare use book cleaner on the ink. The magazine has advertising and several articles which include one by the famous gun writer, Elmer Keith, who wrote about the new 225-grain Western tool and copper bullet and new Noske scope. Other articles are titled: A Near Modern Big Bertha; Hunting in the Yukon; Bedding Rifles in Stocks; Hint for the Making and Uses of Bullet Swages; and Pistol Regulation, Its Principles and History. Magazine measures 9"x12" and has 52 pages.
