Lindbergh Staffa

I thought I would link the Staffa stamp, so that you could
see where the painter nicked the image from

I've been collecting Lindbergh items on and off for quite a few years. I have a lot of stamps and souvenir sheets but I find that the covers are more interesting.

Great covers, doodles. I recognize the St. Louis cancel (or something very similar) from Kirk's C11 cover from 1930.

Doodles,
Very nice cover. He would have stopped off in my town of Springfield IL on his way between St Louis and Chicago and/or Peoria IL. The air field he would have used was on the west side of Springfield and there is a historical marker were it was.

Phil,
Yeah I was at the show in saint louie yesterday. I hardly bought anything and ran out of time to dig into a bunch of covers. I did talk to Eric Jackson about revenue imprints on bank checks for a bit. I did see some Lindy covers, but did not purchase any.

Many thanks though I can't remember where it came from maybe one of Phil's covers I've swapped with him,or maybe one out of the 500 covers off eBay that I won,I did hang back with it just to let some one else post one like it but I could only hang on for ten minute's

Here is an image of a Lindbergh airmail stamp depicting the Spirit of St. Louis, designed by C. Aubrey Huston and Alvin R. Meissner, engraved by Edward J. Hein (vignette), Joachim C. Benzing (frame), William B. Wells (lettering: "New York" and "Paris"), and Edward M. Hall ((other lettering), and issued by the USA on June 18, 1927, Scott No. C10. This stamp was highly popular with the American public of the day.

Still is (OK, I'm not America, but my grandad was, does that count?) It's one of my US airmail faves.
