I was fortunate enough to be able to purchase the QSL card collection of a local 1930's SWL named Samuel Solito. He lived near Pittsburgh and was an avid SW listener who QSLed ham and broadcast stations all over the globe, plus more than a few of local interest. There are many duplicates in the collection and I am offering those for sale. This set is an impressive group of 1930's wallpaper. I'd like $70 for this set including insured mailing. This set includes:
