A Michigan woman got a postcard on Tuesday that was postmarked 100 years ago – in 1920. “Yeah, that’s a little slow,” she says.

A USPS spokesperson says the postcard likely wan’t lost in the postal network for 100 years. Typically old letters and postcards, sometimes purchased at flea markets, antique shops and online, get mailed again. “The end result is what we do best – as long as there is a deliverable address and postage, the card or letter gets delivered.”
