Created over 150 years ago in 1869,  the postcard was the quick, new way to communicate. Cameras, photography and photo processing were new, expensive  and not yet adapted for use by laypersons.  Long distance telecommunications were not readily available.  Mail service, however, was timely and in many communities occurred twice a day. Postcards cost just a penny and needed a 1¢ stamp for domestic mail, a 2¢ stamp to send internationally. In the “Golden Age” of postcards, globally, beginning about 1902  through World War I, many millions of postcards were collected and exchanged.  In the small Dominion of Canada, circa 1905, tens of millions of postcards were in circulation. With no technology and photography in its infancy, postcards were the ‘social media’ of the times!

The first known piece of mail sent using a prepaid stamp — “one of the greatest leaps forward in human communication” — could fetch between $1.5 million and $2.5 million when it comes up for auction at Sotheby’s in New York next month.

If the piece realizes its estimate, Sotheby’s said it would become one of the most valuable pieces of postal history to have ever been auctioned.
