Unmailable Birthday Greeting from 1911

A Happy Birthday to you

This postcard was mailed from Brooklyn, N.Y. in 1911 with a one cent stamp (and a postmark from Coney Island!) It is addressed and mailed, but the post office put a stamp on the back that reads, 'Unmailable" - the pictures are covered in little glass beads and tiny metallic dots.  Also, the border is all embossed
