These cards belong to the portion of my collection dealing with the old county courthouses of North and South Carolina.  There are almost 200 counties that fit into this collection and many of these counties have a "new" and "old" courthouse.

I am always interested in trading these cards if you happen to have one and are interested in a trade.  For those unfamiliar with post-cards; if the card is not absolutely mint, unused, with very sharp corners then the value is between only $1 - $5 even if it is 75 years old.  Too many folks are sending emails offering to sell me these old cards for $20+...  One of the pleasures of post-card collecting is that they are cheap.

USGenWeb Project volunteers may link to these graphics if desired or I can make you a larger scan -- others please make a copy to your own drive.
