 Flying postcards, letters, and plain cards via zeppelin was always popular with the German people and their correspondents at the many worldwide zeppelin destinations. These items have a lot of detail to them, and remain quite popular to this date. Our offering today is an envelope that measures 4 1/4″ x 6 1/2.” The envelope was mailed to a Josef Goldberger in New York. In the upper left corner is a stamp that says “Erstflug Mit Luftschiff ‘Hindenburg L. Z. 129′ nach Nord-Amerika.” To the right we see a blue rubber stamp that reads“Mit Luftpost Par Avion.” Below it and again to the left is a red rubber stamp that shows an airplane and a zeppelin flying together. Around the edge of the stamp is “Deutsche Luftpost Europa-Nordamerika.” To its right is a canceled stamp in the amount of 50 Pfennig. The stamp shows azeppelin in flight. The stamp’s top reads “Mit LZ 129 nach Nordamerika.” The stamp is canceled from the Bahnpostamt in Frankfurt. On the reverse we see the return address of the sender, a Norbert Frischer in Vienna. Also it has a cancellation from New York, NY on 9 May 1936. This is particularly interesting, as theHindenburg exploded into flames barely one year later at Lyndhurst, NJ.
