Wow-I missed this post!
I have a collection of Valentine cards from when I was in fith grade and even saved all my kids' valentines from the 1980's. I will dig a few out, but those that you have from the early 1900's are so precious! I bought a couple at a local flea market -2 for $1 that were very old--but can't remember where I placed them-figures!

I have a round oak table with glass on top of it , and at holiday time I put Christmas cards and Valentines under the glass so all can see them while we eat.

Thanks for the post!

Since 1984, at least, the United States has been issuing 'LOVE' stamps usually, but not always, with a heart design. Most, but not all, seem to have been issued near the end of January, arguably in time for Valentine's day. In 2001, three of the four love stamps were issued on February 14th, Valentine's Day, though the love stamps, as such, have not been Valentine's day stamps.

The number of letters posted in the metropolis and in the
country is subject, at stated times, to a very great
augmentation. In London, for instance, on saturday night
and Monday Morning, an increase in letters of from thirty
to forty percent, takes place owing to the Sunday closing
of the Post-Office.

Valentines day, again, has an immense effect in gorging
the general as well as local posts with love epistles.
Those who move in higher circles might imagine the
Valentine to be a "dead letter"; but the experience of the
Post office shows that the warm old saint still keeps up
an active agitation among tender hearts.

According to the evidence given by Mr. Rowland Hill,
the increase of letters on the 14th February, is not less
than 500,000 throughout the United Kingdom.

May I take this opportunity to introduce readers to one of the lovely pages of the late Mrs. Mette Heindorff of Denmark.
A super lady and a real stamp collecting friend for years.
She did some wonderful work.

Stampfan9: I actually had to lookup on Wiki what a "nosegay" is (latest scan). Kind of an archaic term in this generation. For any others who may not know, this is the meaning:


Quote:
A nosegay, tussie-mussie, or posy is a small flower bouquet, typically given as a gift. They have existed in some form since at least medieval times, when they were carried or worn around the head or bodice. Doilies are traditionally used to bind the stems in these arrangements. Alternatively, "posy holders," available in a variety of shapes and materials (although often silver), enable the wearing of these arrangements "at the waist, in the hair, or secured with a brooch."

The term nosegay arose in fifteenth-century Middle English as a combination of nose and gay (the latter then meaning "ornament"). So a nosegay was an ornament that appeals to the nose or nostril.

wt1, thanks. I learned something new as I had always thought a nosegay was a specific type of flower.
