Archive consisting of five items relating to the Hindenburg. Archive includes:

A swatch of singed treated fabric, approximately 3 x 2, recovered from the May 6, 1937, crash site by Thurlow C. Haunton. Provenance: Bonhams.

A singed fragment of fabric rigging, approximately 6″ long, with string and six eyelets, recovered from the May 6, 1937, crash site by Thurlow C. Haunton. Provenance: Bonhams.

An unused oval gummed label, 5.25 x 3.5, in red, white, and blue, imprinted with images of an airship and an airplane, imprinted “Airship Hindenburg/American Airlines Inc./Exclusive Connecting Service.”

A printed message from A. E. Jessurun on the reverse of a 5.5 x 3.25 government postcard, April 30, 1936. Titled “Flying Trip,” Jessurun begins, “I leave this afternoon by Airplane for San Francisco to New York and from Lakehurst, New Jersey I will fly on the Graf Zeppelin Hindenburg to Frankfurt, Germany remaining there one and one half days and then fly on the Hindenburg to Lakehurst, New Jersey and fly back to Chicago.”

A commemorative cover, 6.5 x 3.75, with a cachet honoring Lakehurst Trans-Atlantic First Hindenburg Flight Frankfurt-am-Main, with two US airmail stamps postmarked New York, May 11, 1936. Cover bears a typed address to Mr. Thurlow Clark Haunton, Long Branch, N.J., and is postmarked on the reverse Frankfurt-am-Main, May 14, 1936, with postmark depicting the airship captioned in German, “Carried by Airship Hindenburg.”

In very good to fine overall condition, with scattered toning and soiling to cover, pencil notation to reverse of postcard, as well as a bit of scattered light toning. A very interesting collection of items boasting two particularly large remnants of the ship. RRAuction COA.
