April Fools' Day, 2011

Public School Building, Alva, Okla.

Postmarked Wichita, Kansas, May 7, 1919, 10 AM

Mr. C.E. Burrows
1153 Univ. Ave.

Dear Daddy:

I am just starting to write a letter to mama, & I thot I'd send you a card.  Are you going to come down and drive thru with me?  How do you feel now, papa, better I hope.  It won't be long now until I'll be home, we are getting almost thru downs(?) here.  I was at Alva yesterday; Well, bye bye.

The postage stamp was an April fools joke, right.
First it is a very, very rare error stamp.
The upside down airplane was never used.
one of them just sold at auction in 2007 for $825,000.00.
It was never postage canceled and it only cost a penny to send a post card back then.
