Description


Sought-after limited edition flown airmail cover carried on her historic transatlantic flight from Newfoundland to Ireland on May 20–21, 1932, 6.5 x 3.5, numbered 32/50, signed in the lower left below the stamped cachet in fountain pen, “Amelia Earhart.” Addressed in type to her fellow aviation pioneer Bernt Balchen. Two stamps are affixed to the cover: one three halfpence revenue stamp postmarked at the site of her landing, Londonderry, Northern Ireland, two days after completing her flight on May 23; and one desirable five-cent US airmail postage stamp, postmarked at Grand Central Station, May 13. In fine condition. As a cover carried on Earhart’s historically important flight as the first woman to make a nonstop solo crossing of the Atlantic, this piece is scarce of the utmost desirability. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
