The front and back of the envelope have separated and the right side was where it was torn open. Minimal edge wear and staining on back as shown in my photos. Still, this displays well, showing early postmarks from Greenville SC and Atlanta GA.Along with the very early version of the Coca-Cola script logo with the line: The Brain Tonic and Intellectual Soda Fountain Beverage. The hand-written letter was written by a young man to his sister; dated October 4th,'89. The letter goes on to say how he was hired by Mr. The letter measures 5" x 16", two sided, folded to fit inside the envelope. No tears, no creases, no stains, no age odor. There are two small square areas of paper loss from tape residue I'm thinking. You'll be hard pressed to find another letter and envelope as rare as this. I'm reluctant to part with this as I know the chance of finding another will be slim to none. Please check out my other vintage Coca-Cola items that I'm listing today.
