Welcome to Attic Heritage Auctions located in the land of many postcard views-- New Hampshire.
Please visit us often as we have thousands of postcards to share and our inventory will change as we go. Please note that all photos are scans that are presented here just as the scanner recorded them. Some do not accurately show the entire item but please note that all cards are intact in the proper size and are not actually cut off as the scan sometimes makes it appear. We never, ever enhance an image in any way. Additionally, we try our best to present an honest opinion of the card by following a grading standard. We all see things differently so bear in mind-- these are only our opinions based upon our experience. We've been collecting for over 58 years. We're a member of the International Federation of Postcard Dealers and numerous postcard collectors clubs across the USA and Canada.
Thank you for visiting us today.

Grading of Postcards
MINT (M): Perfect condition, no apparent blemishes, flaws, postally unused, may have some writing on back.
NEAR MINT (NM): Like new, image is uncompromised, may have slight discoloration due to age, maybe postally used, possible one or two hardly noticeable signs of wear, maybe writing on back.
EXCELLENT (E): Like new, some signs of age, possible discoloration, may have album marks or residue on back, may have light crease, may be postally used or have writing on card but over all a super nice card.
VERY GOOD (VG): May have signs of wear, possible discoloration due to age, maybe album marks or residue on back, maybe postally used or written on, maybe minor soiling , possibly creases, small tears or chipping but image is still good.
GOOD (G): Signs of wear, maybe creases or tears, possible discoloration, maybe album marks or residue on back, possible writing on back, maybe postally used but better than average.
AVERAGE (A): Given its age and circumstances, average would generally apply to postally used cards with expected wear and tear. Still a decent find but not top notch.
POOR (P): We only sell cards in poor condition when we have fully disclosed their condition or as part of a "grab bag" group. These will always be at a very low cost and are sold "as is" and all such sales are final-- no returns on these.
