Pauls Valley, OK (KTNV) -- An Oklahoma family received a special delivery, more than 45 years after it was sent.
A postcard sent during a trip to the East Coast in 1967, just made its way to its destination.
Bert Jacobsen sent it when he was 13-years-old, to his mother, and mailed it to the family's business P.O. box; the same one they still use now.
When the family went to pick up their mail last week, there was a postcard of the Old Country Store Museum in Hereford, Pennsylvania, complete with a 1967 postmark and 4-cent Abe Lincoln stamp.
So where was the postcard all these years?
"Under a piece of machinery? I don't know. I have no idea," said Jacobsen to "News on 6" in Tulsa, about why it took so long to deliver the letter.
"I'm sure this is one in a billion. Mine just happened to be one of them."
