Trick or Treat?


(Post Office thinks this isn't the first mailing of this card)

BELDING, Mich. Woodrow Wilson was at the tail-end of his presidency, the Charleston was about to become one of the most popular dances of the decade and audiences were lining up to see the likes of Charlie Chaplin and other silent film stars -- it was 1920 and a postcard mailed that year arrived earlier this week to a Michigan homeowner.

The old Halloween card, postmarked Oct. 29, 1920, has a 1-cent George Washington stamp on it and might have been lost in the mail, WXYZ reported.

I start looking at it and Im like, Okay, its been through some wear and tear, said Brittany Keech, who found the postcard Tuesday on the top of her stack of mail.
