I ran across this current auction and thought it was amusing. Read the body of the letter. Some things never change!

That's too funny

Do you think it's actually real? He only gave the guy 7 days to send 'em...
Unless maybe it was the previous year?

YEAH, I AGREE! ONLY SEVEN DAYS....WHAT ABOUT THE TIME IT TAKES FOR A CHECK TO CLEAR. MUST'VE TAKEN LONGER IN THE OLD DAYS! LOL!

ABOUT THOSE STAMPS. BACK THEN THEY WERE $12.50 FOR THE THREE.
NOW THEY'RE PROBABLY WORTH $1,250.00 AND THAT POSTMARKED!
