Q: My uncle sent this Christmas card to my mother in 1944, when he was in the Army in France. It pictures an American soldier climbing the Eiffel Tower with several other historic Paris buildings in the background. Is it worth anything?


A: Christmas cards and postcards picturing different locations and including members of different branches of the military were designed for soldiers to send back home during World War II. This card celebrates the liberation of Paris in August 1944 after four years under German occupation. Postcards might sell for about $25. Christmas cards like this sell for $5 to $10.
