ESSAYS

Before issueing letter cards in 1888, some essays were made.


 

THE EDGE



As written on the edge, the normal use of the letter card will be to tear off the edge of the letter card when opening it. But some cards were opened with the edge being intact. These letter cards are scarce and the value is higher than used letter cards without the edge.
