Description


Choice limited edition flown airmail cover, 9.5 x 4, numbered 5/49, signed on the left side in fountain pen, “Carried by air, Honolulu–Oakland, January 11–12, 1935, Amelia Earhart.” Addressed in type to Earhart’s husband, “Mr. George Palmer Putnam, Honolulu, Hawaii, U.S.A.” Two postage stamps are affixed to the upper right and the cover bears Honolulu and Oakland postal cancellations. In fine condition. Earhart carried this as one of 49 such covers when she made the first-ever solo flight from Hawaii to California, a distance longer than her transatlantic journey of 1932. Despite advances in air travel it was still considered a dangerous endeavor, especially as another pilot had disappeared the previous year near Hawaii while traveling in the opposite direction on the same route. A great, crisply signed example carried on this groundbreaking solo flight. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
