Description


Flown Hindenburg advertising Veedol postcard carried on the airship’s initial flight from Friedrichshafen [Frankfurt], Germany, to Lakehurst, New Jersey, 5.5 x 3.5, featuring a large illustrated image of the zeppelin on the front and a red ink-stamped cachet on the reverse. The postcard bears an affixed German 50-pfennig airmail stamp postmarked at Hamburg, April 25, 1936, with an American cancellation to the lower right at New York, May 9, 1936. In fine condition, with trivial edgewear. The Hindenburg left from Frankfurt on May 6, 1936—exactly one year prior to the disaster—and landed in Lakehurst on May 9, the day of this New York postal cancellation.
