Stamps (Philately)/Questions on old postage


I've had this postcard for years and have not been able to get much information on it. Can you help with determining a value of it with the postage? It's in perfect condition as its been kept in a protective sleeve.


Your postal card is designated Scott number UX12 and was first issued in 1894.  Despite its age, this postal card, pre-printed with address and/or message, is fairly common.  It has a catalog (retail) value of $2.25 in fault-free, eye-appealing condition.  

To offer some perspective, the same card, unused and without pre-printing, is rarer and valued at $45.  In postally used condition, UX12 is valued at 65 cents.
