    Am I just being paranoid? here is the card in question. It's really hard to see but towards the top of the ripped off stamp you can see some light spotting. The reason why I don't want to get rid of this card is that it came from the same collection from a man who received Halloween cards year after year. I have cards from him for 1915-1920

    I was expecting something far worse than this. Personally I wouldn't worry about it.

    I think a day in UV sunlight, will kill that without using any chemicals. I would still put it into a sleeve to keep it from spreading, just in case the sunlight didn't get it all.
