Hi team,
Here is what seems to be a very old Post card from Paris. I have looked all over for this card on the internet but can't find anything.

This post card is a very thin paper type of material. Please see the photos below and tell me what you think. What is the History of this post card and possible value.

SO, for some reason I am not successful at downloading the images. Can an email be provided so I can send them via email?

@rodd222: Strange. The link does not work, the search on that site has its issues, yet bing gets you there.

Let's try another link:

It was the site of a battle in the Napoleonic War of 1814 and again a major battle in 1918. The picture was taken after that last battle.

Note: the card is not from Paris. That is one of the places where the publisher is located. The card is from Chateau-Theirry in the Aisne.

I have no idea why this site keeps changing Thi-erry into Theirry. I corrected it a few times, but it keeps changing the spelling. I had to insert the "-" to keep it from doing it here as well.

These were widely produced, and many war-damaged French and Belgian towns can be easily found

Than you Don so very much for fixing the images.
Thank you all so very much for your feedback.
What is the guesstimated value of this card?

It appears the asking price for this type of cards can be up to 9 a piece, but I doubt they are sold at such prices. You, probably would be lucky to get 1, a few cents being more likely.

As the link GeofHa provided shows, 60 of them attract a bid of 1.

Thank you NSK, very much. Let me ask you this...what kind of Post Cards are most valuable? I have a bunch that my Grandmother had put back and gave me many years ago and I pulled them out of storage.

That's too big a question. Subjects that have a particular interest to people - from sport to suffragettes, What is rarely worth more than a penny is the view of Paris someone's ancestor sent in 1920. Try this site for more background on postcards
