Cancel Date:09/05/1907
Notes:This is an interesting postcard from Leeds MN to Montevideo MN, sent on Sept 5th 1907. It has a receiving stamp from Mandt Rural Sta in MN on Sept 7th 1907. The thing that makes it rather interesting is that the Leeds PO only operated between 1879 and 1880. Assuming this is real, just being from Leeds it has a rarity code of 8 according to Richard Helbock's book "United States Post Offices", which gives it a value of between $200 and $500.
