Photo: A. Victor Segno sends out a “success wave” (artist’s concept).
A. Victor Segno is probably our favorite Los Angeles charlatan. He made money by getting people to mail him a dollar a month in return for sending out a daily mental “success wave.” The money is gone, but the envelopes turn up frequently on EBay, and some of the stamps are extremely rare. This one, from Cuba, is listed starting at 99 cents.
I have yet another cover from Russia this time in 1907. If you want a scan, let me know.
