1930 Franklin One Cent Stamp on Postcard of Puerto Rico w/ Biplane Air Mail cancellation

This card was picked up as part of an album of postcards at an estate sale from an antique store owner in Northern California. Most cards were mailed by a couple of world travelers from the 1920's thru 1950's.

This one was postmared from San Juan, Puerto Rico in 1930. The age & stamp caught my attention as I disassembled the album because it contained acidic paper. When I examinrd it, I noticed that the corners were marred by semi-cicular marks, apparently from hole reinforcers with adhesive.

The card says it was made in Germany, but published in PR.

I'd like to know what the card & stamp are worth.
