AAMC Z-111 (Sieger 64F) 1930 Graf Zeppelin First Pan-America Round Flight card, Second Dispatch, Lakehurst to Friedrichshafen. Franked with Scott #C13 [65 cent Graf Zeppelin] (VF centered) paying the proper post card rate. Sent from Lakehurst on May 30 and bearing the altered violet U.S. cachet showing only the last leg of the triangle, plus the red German cachet, Friedrichshafen receiving mark, and finally the green pictorial June 18 New York receiver on reverse. Back of card reproduces cachet of the earlier 1929 Round-The-World Flight with additional details about that flight. A lovely Graf Zeppelin postal history item from one of the most significant flights of the doomed airship!

Scott #210 [1883 2c Red Brown Washington] extremely damaged on 16 January 1887 cover from the "House of Representatives U.S." containing a complete handwritten letter from U.S. Representative (from New York 15th district) Henry Bacon to H.W. Chadeaque of Cornwall, New York. The Washington postmark is likely of a type used for Congressional mail. The reverse of the envelope bears a fancy scalloped blue oval receiving postmark "CORNWALL / Orange Co., N.Y. / Rec. JAN 17". The letter appears to be addressing a complaint from a constituent in regard to postal matters, apparently unsatisfactory mail carrier service. The letter is signed by Henry Bacon -- the signature matches known examples. There is a discoloration in the corner containing the signature (and the envelope was affected also), however, online autograph dealers offer this signature (undated, not on a full letter) at $170! The primary value is that of the autograph, however, the receiver postmark may be scarce as well.
