Superior format honoring the the 25th anniversary of manned flight, complete with original Flyer relics

Airmail cover postmarked at Dayton, Ohio, on December 17, 1928, signed in the upper left in fountain pen, “Orville Wright.” A lightly stamped cachet to the left side reads: “In commemoration of the 25th anniversary of the first aeroplane flight by Wilbur & Orville Wright. Compliments, Dayton Chamber Commerce.” Affixed to the cover are a small plastic sleeve with a .75 x .5 swatch of muslin fabric that lined the frame of the original Wright Flyer and a 5.25″ metal strip that once formed an element in the 1905 Wright Flyer’s original spar fittings. In fine condition, with light toning and soiling and the cachet stamp significantly faded. Accompanied by a packet of provenance information stating that the fabric was originally obtained by Wright Brothers’ employee Harvey D. Geyer and the metal relic was presented to Louis P. Christman by Col. Edward Deeds for his work in restoring the 1905 Wright Flyer. Rarely found in such an appealing format. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
