My first postcard received in 2009 is from Austria. It was sent by a Postcrosser. There is not much to say about the card except that it is a Christmas card styled postcard. I think the most interesting part of the card is the lack of a postage stamp. It has a Austria Postage Paid handstamp with the value of 1.40 .I wonder what the reason for this would be. Did the post office run out of stamps ? Were they too busy to sell a stamp ? Either way, I don't particularly like it. As a collector, I think all mail should have a stamp.
