Fast facts
I have a post card dated 1919 for a $.05 refund on a purchase from Sears given to a man in South Carolina. Could you please tell me anything about this item?

Occasionally, customers would overpay for the cost of shipping their merchandise. Other times, a product would not meet Sears "satisfaction guaranteed" promise. The customer might replace the item with a new one, and Sears would reimburse the difference between the two items. These refund cards or vouchers are relatively common and often make interesting family mementos.
