Ray Hahn is a retired educator, but he has never stopped teaching. His decades of researching, writing and editing a newsletter for the South Jersey Postcard Club has been a world-class education in trivia. In addition to postcard collecting, Ray’s other interests include history, genealogy, and touring the world with his wife Marie. Ray often advises his readers to “Join me as we explore the world one postcard at a time.” Ray and Marie live in New Jersey.
Most collectors know when, where, and how much they paid for the first “official” postcard they collected, but sadly there has never been a place to record such data. For me it was in West Virginia, in 1983, and I paid 25 cents.
