More “Sammy In France” cards discovered!

Another exciting day for FMSketches as two previously unknown Mackain postcards have been discovered by the well-known collector John Place. The cards, one of which shows an American “Sammy” talking to a French “Poilus” in a pleasant village setting, and the other of a Sammy admiring a French windmill, are part of the “Sammy In France / Les Américains en France” series catalogued under “Other Postcards”).

It remains to be seen whether this now completes a six-set of cards in the “Sammy In France” series, but for now we believe there are no others (but we would love to be proven wrong!).
