    Mailing a letter the old-fashioned way is often referred to as snail mail. This particular story certainly lives up to that saying.

    A postcard arrived at a P.O. Box in Ohio this past week -- 47 years late!

    The card was send from Montana to Ohio in 1962. Both the sender and intended receiver are no longer living.

    A Postal Service Spokesperson said the card may have been stuck inside equipment or lost.

    When the card was mailed nearly five decades ago, the price of a stamp was four cents.
