This is an unusual valentine showing a young woman surrounded by white doves. Her auburn curls are flying in the breeze beneath a turban of red, green & gold. She is wearing a white blouse with billowing sleeves and a tied shawl collar. A red bodice has been cinched with a green sash with ties flying behind her in the wind. She is also wearing a dark plaid skirt of black, red and green. The large over-apron is gold colored. Her stockings are brown and her sturdy shoes are black with small gold buckles. The message simply states: To My Valentine. This card has been printed with visible stippling dots. The divided back has the IAPC logo in the upper left corner. The one cent stamp is Ben Franklin bordered by classic human figures. The full message has been written in pencil by an adult with a fine hand. The date of the message is 1908. The image has been embossed. The corners are soft and one is slightly creased.
