(we are no longer accepting bids on this item)
Minimum Bid: $200.00
Sold Price: $300.00 (includes buyer's premium)


A United States government postcard, 5.5 x 3.25, with an ALS, in German, signed “Your loving nephew Edmund,” stamp-dated May 7, 1936, to his aunt and uncle in Germany, with the address side bearing several desirable airmail stamps and a large Frankfurt postmark where card was received on May 14, 1936. Postcard reads, (translated): “I am sending you this card via the dirigible ‘Hindenburg’ on its first flight from America. By same mail I am sending you a letter, please do not open this envelope. It does not actually contain a letter and is only intended for my collection. Please return both items to me with a letter from you. Hoping you are both well and already in possession of these long awaited items.” Uniform toning, some light soiling to correspondence side, and several notations and pencil marks to address side, otherwise fine condition. RRAuction COA.
