The postcard was sent to Marion White, 75, the previous renter of the box, who had died in 1988. The postcard was signed “Fran” and said “had a marvelous time in Montana," said ChinaDaily news.

Dave Conn the current owner of the mailing address found the mailing sent from Helena, Mont., in 1962.

Conn has done investigation of the post card and is determined that the card must have come from White's well-traveled friend Frances Murphey, a longtime reporter at the Akron Beacon Journal. She died in 1998 at age 75 said AOL news.

U.S. Postal Service spokesman Victor Dubina says the postcard may have been stuck in equipment or lost behind a mail chute.
