A postcard from a family member wisely fleeing Ontario’s winter to sunny Arizona arrived this week. It’s a first for the Collection – a metal postcard. I have several non-paper postcards, but non are made of metal; this one is made of copper.
It’s a sheet of foil wrapped onto cardboard. I’m not sure about the extent of copper on it as the non-embossed parts don’t seem metallic, but the embossed parts definitely seem metallic.
It’s from Tortilla Flat, Arizona – which does indeed have a population of six people and a restaurant that I’d really like to visit right now.
Here’s the back of the postcard.
“This collectable embossed card was made in Arizona the Copper State. It is one of the many available: historic, local and scenic interests.”

“Hi Glen. Having a great time here in Apache Junction. We thought you might like to add this one to your collection.”
