Cat. Value (Adjusted Cat. value adjusted for condition:
Comedic postcard from Bamforth & Co Ltd. “Published by BAMFORTH & CO., LTD., Holmfirth, Yorkshire. “COMIC” Series. No. 382. Printed in England.” It shows a pair of halfpenny Machins, plus an extra sixpence Machin. All three stamps are in poor to fair condition, and the card is general shows some signs of wear and damage. The obverse of the postcard shows a man attempting to seduce (or rather, assult) a lady who is telling him “I DON’T CARE IF YOU HAVE GOT A RUDDY ACCESS CARD. IT DOESN’T GIVE YOU ACCESS TO THAT!”. Used in Southampton on the 12th of September, 1977, it is addressed to “Mrs. S. Clark, 2 Wyke Cottage. Bradford Abbey, Nr. ? Hants[?]. It appears to have arrived at the wrong address, and has another note reading “Try 4”. The message simply reads, “From great [?]”.
