Long Lost Christmas Card Dated 1914 Arrives Nearly a Century Later In Kansas!!

OBERLIN, Kan. A postcard featuring a color drawing of Santa Claus and a young girl was mailed in 1914, but it's journey was slower than Christmas. It just arrived in northwest Kansas.The Christmas card was dated Dec. 23, 1914, and mailed to Ethel Martin of Oberlin, apparently from her cousins in Alma, Neb.It's a mystery where it spent most of the last century, Oberlin Postmaster Steve Schultz said. "It's surprising that it never got thrown away," he said. "How someone found it, I don't know."Ethel Martin is deceased, but Schultz said the post office wanted to get the card to a relative.That's how the 93-year-old relic ended up with Bernice Martin, Ethel's sister-in-law. She said she believed the card had been found somewhere in Illinois."That's all we know," she said. "But it is kind of curious. We'd like to know how it got down there."The card was placed inside another envelope with modern postage for the trip to Oberlin the one-cent postage of the early 20th century wouldn't have covered it, Martin said."We don't know much about it," she said. "But wherever they kept it, it was in perfect shape."

This thread is kinda ironic considering the Christian Okoye autographed 8x10 thread started earlier this evening.

It was probably found inside the USPS system and they made someone buy more postage to complete the job they hadn't managed to get done in damn near a century.

Actually, I'm surprised they didn't do a return to sender for insufficient postage.

And, inside with the Christmas card, another card that said, "Raiders win third Super Bowl."

If it was in fact mailed in 1914, shouldn't the 1 cent have covered it? Sounds like someone is getting ripped off here.
