This Lindburgh booklet C10A is on eBay right now. It is quite spectacular, being the only C10A I have ever seen precancelled, and from Hawaii. It will sell for a high price.

Here is an image of another Lindbergh issue from my collection, a booklet stamp depicting both the pilot and his plane, designed by Göran Österlund, engraved by Martin Mörck, and issued by Sweden on March 29, 1988 in celebration of New Sweden and Swedish-Americans, Scott No. 1675, Facit No. 1493.

Is it a precancel or is that repeated strikes with a box cancellation?

I don't know, but someone here (smarter than I) will know.

Here is an image of a MANPEX '77 stamp club cacheted cover with (primarily) a Lindbergh theme. The postage stamp depicts George Washington at Princeton, along with Nassau Hall, Hessian prisoners and a 13-star flag, designed by Bradbury Thompson after a painting by American artist Charles Wilson Peale (1741-1827), printed by photogravure, and issued by the USA on January 3, 1977, Scott No. 1704.

Here is an image of another Charles Lindbergh stamp, depicting the Spirit of St. Louis, and also L'Oiseau Blanc (The White Bird), the biplane flown by French WW1 ace Charles Eugène Jules Marie Nungesser and fellow pilot François Coli during their unsuccessful (and presumably fatal, as they and their plane mysteriously disappeared enroute) attempt to make the first non-stop transatlantic flight from Paris to New York in May, 1927. This airmail stamp was designed and engraved by Pierre Forget, and issued by France on June 4, 1977, Scott No. C49, Y&T No. PA50.

Interesting to note the Horseshoe cachet
shown by Doodle may not have been flown by Lindbergh.
Several thousand covers were flown by a "chase plane "
that followed Lindbergh between the two cities.

Well, my mother would have said that the horse shoe was upside down, so his luck ran out.

I've always thought the aeroplane (as they used to call 'em) on this 1928 US stamp looked like the Spirit of St. Louis, but I've never seen it credited as such. Could it have been a subtle homage?
