Postcrossing Sunday - Finland

I got this envelope in the mail last week. This postcard was "RECEIVED IN DAMAGED CONDITION"

The edges were worn and open, and taped back up by someone postal worker somewhere. I'm glad they taped it back up - It's nice to have SOME of the pieces. I've seen this kind of card before at the store - and was excited to get one.

I put together what I had... but if you notice closely, all I have of the postcard ID# is the "5". When you send postcards through Postcrossing you put ID#s on the cards so they can be tracked and whatnot. If you get a card with out an ID or a partial ID, figuring out where and who it came from can be hard. There is a form to fill out on the website - and it has worked for me in the past. I'm crossing my fingers on finding out this ID. All I have to go with is the postmark date, a place and the number 5. Usually I have a little more.

I'll let you know if I ever figure it out....

  2. Tricky! I guess I'm going to get a card with no ID# sooner or later.

    I had 2 postcards registered the last couple of days, so I am able to have 6 travelling now.

  3. I'm still pretty upset that you received the card in that condition. What's most irritating is that I put extra postage to it because I wasn't sure if it's too heavy. Did you understand my message? You got almost all of it.

  4. I pretty much understood your message. Don't worry about it, these things happen. I enjoy a good mystery now and then ;-)
