Metropolitan Comic Post Card Artist Signed Free Franking Ca. 1943

This WWII Vintage comic post card was sent under the "free franking" allowance for servicemen, in this case stationed at Fort Sam Houston in Texas. It is postmarked San Antonio, Texas May 31, 1943 and was sent to Miss Helen Wolters of St. John's Hospital in Red Wing, Minnesota. Free franking is indicated by the word FREE written near the stamp box. Also note the "Buy War Savings Bonds and Stamps" post mark. Incidentally, the post office also had to apply a stamp saying that delivery was delayed "on account of incomplete address" but we also see that it was "Rec. Fri. June 4 and answered Aug. 13. The sender was one Norbert Jasken if I read it correctly. He is a veteran of Company D, 378th Infantry at Fort Sam Houston. Condition is, by accepted standards and due to the visible post mark on the front, fair. The card would otherwise rate an excellent rating as physical condition goes. There are no creases, holes, tears, stains, etc. Edges and corners are very nice, very slightly blunted (3). The signature of the artist, Andy, is seen at the extreme lower right front.

Thanks very much for stopping by.
