Copyrighted 1909 by Julius Bien & Co. This circulated Halloween postcard is postmarked 1910. The title of the card is on the fence; "What the Boys Did to the Cow!" You can just hear the shriek from the farmer's wife as she leaps back from the cow dropping her milking stool and pail. The milk cow raises her head and a grinning Jack O Lantern sits on each of her horns. Typical of this Halloween Series by Julius Bien an eerie crescent moon lights the sky. This card is part of the 980 series of Halloween postcards by Julius Bien and numbered is numbered 9804. The colors are rich and the card is embossed. The copyright information is in the left lower portion of the card front and the company logo is present on the back. It remains in overall very good condition. The corners are lightly bumped but no creases or tears. There is light soiling on the upper edge. The note on the back is written in pencil. Someone has neatly written a last name in small letters in ink on the back of the card.
