Hello from Spyglass Treasures and Spyglass Booty! We are constantly trying to "SPY" out treasures for you in our travels. Please come back often because you never know what we have "commandeered" to offer you!This is one of a few old postcards I will be listing today. This one has a photograph of an Army inspection at Camp Dix in New Jersey. It was mailed on August 23, 1918, the tail end of World War I by a Soldier saying good-bye to his friend in Orange, California to whom he addressed this postcard. It was mailed with two green George Washington 1 cent stamps and the message from the soldier reads, "Leaving today for overthere. Good luck to all of you. Good bye Sgt. Henry T. Appel. The caption on the front black and white photograph reads, "Inspection, Camp Dis, Wrightstown, N. J." A wonderful treasure you NEED to commandeer for yourself or your loved ones! Condition: There is a little wear, a couple of corner bumps, and discoloration typical from age. Otherwise, this wonderful antique real photo postcard is in excellent condition!

Due to eBay's upcoming changes in fees, I will be experimenting with offering free and flat rate shipping on select items. The carrier I use for these instances will be dependent on the weight and size of each specific item or items. For the most part, I use Priority and First Class Mail for lighter weight items and for items that may not require a box but can be shipped in an envelope. However, most items will ship via UPS if shipped within the continental US. My shipping days are typically Monday through Thursday not including holidays.

An additional note about insurance. Some time ago, Ebay changed its rules regarding insurance. They state that making sure that a package gets safely in your hands is the seller's responsibility. While I agree this is actually a very good policy to ensure confidence in making a purchase on Ebay, it has resulted in making insurance a requirement for every sale. Insurance is included in the shipping and handling cost for all items shipped within the United States. All items whose value goes above $100.00 and whose winner is outside of the United States will be shipped via USPS Insured Priority or Express Mail.
