  • Boise, state capitol

    From the 1960s, an unused Mike Roberts card NCI-8 (also C17681) whose caption describes this large building as being “in the downtown section of the city” of Boise. The photo hides that particular fact very well. Card is aging significantly on the reverse. Grade: 3

  • An Idaho Potato

    This happens often with generic postcards.  Compare this card with our own entry 10120042 (from Maine) and you will see it is the same picture but the reverse caption just mentions a different state.  That toy tractor must have travelled very fast.  Anyway, we have three of these “Idaho Potato” cards available.  Two are unused and slightly stained on the reverse (Grades: 3, $0.50) and one was mailed in 1956 with stamp and partial postmark and water stain on the reverse (Grade: 3, $0.50).

  • Lewiston, El Rancho Motel

    In a society where every raindop gets an online review, we thought we would see how this motel is doing.  If you were to go to Google and search, you would come out of it wondering if they are still in business or not.  Thoroughly confusing, but, either way, the card is here.  Unused, but heavily creased and some staining on the reverse.  Grade: 4
