For What It’s Worth

A young collector (yes, they exist) recently brought in a postcard book of the Newport Naval Training Station, inquiring into its value. He said that he paid $2 for it at a yard sale a couple of weeks ago. This example is Series 1 of which there were several. Containing 13 cards, this booklet can be found in the marketplace for around $20, so he made a good buy!
