The old Pitcairn Church



It never ceases to amaze me that old Pitcairn postcards are still being discovered. I knew of the very rare "HGK" postcard of the two storey Pitcairn church (shown above, top, catalogued as H4) and didn't expect to find another card with a similar view. However, one was recently sold on eBay for the quite amazing sum of US$386.00. This appears to be a postcard that has been produced in more than one copy, so have a look carefully in the dealers boxes at Postcard Fairs . . . you never know your luck!
