Here's an unusual postcard! It is not only a postcard, but also an  actual record you can play on a phonograph !!!

This is an original Chrome era postcard from around 1950 or so. It shows a nice patriotic view of the Color Guard at West Point NY. What makes this so unusual, is that it is also a 78 rpm record as well! The front of the postcard has a record etched into it, and if you pop out the center hole, you can play the music on a standard phonograph! The front of the postcard is printed "Play this record on your phonograph, 78 rpm speed manual". 

Really cool!
