Lindbergh actually did take a cat of sorts with him. It was a doll --
a good luck charm, perhaps -- based on the popular cartoon
character, Felix the Cat.

The 1930 Spanish stamp commemorating Charles Lindbergh's
record-breaking flight from New York to Paris showed his cat
Patsy watching as his plane took off. Pasty often accompanied
Lindbergh on his flights, but did not go on the 1927 flight that
made him famous. (he did not want to put the cat in danger)
Lindbergh said "It's too dangerous a journey to risk the cat's life."
However a kitten named Jazz flew on the first dirigible flight from
the UK to America.

@jamesw - Regarding your question concerning the USA 5c Globe and airplane issue of December 12, 1938, designed by C. Aubrey Huston and Alvin R. Meissner, Scott No. 650: US stamp expert Gary Griffith wrote the following on page 158 in his book United States Stamps 1927-32: "While the aircraft shown is not designated as Lindbergh's Spirit of St. Louis, it is a very similar monoplane, with a rotary engine. No doubt it was intended to bring Lindbergh to mind, as he, like [Orville] Wright, would be honored at the [International Civil Aeronautics] conference." - nethryk

Not a stamp, this will have to do!

Charles Lindbergh and my dad, Douglas M. Swisher, were in flying school together at Kelly Field, Texas, in 1924. Here's the results of the cadets' pistol shooting competition.

Doug: great personal connection. That sort of thing always turns my crank.

Just back from visiting a good friend. As has happened on many recent visits with her, she handed me this envelope (this is the same person who gave me a shopping bag full of old mail last summer, much of it a US soldiers WWII letters home).
This letter is addressed to the same young man, only years earlier. As you can see it has two C7 airmail stamps and a cachet stating "Lindbergh again flies the air mail. Chicago St. Louis C.A.M. 2 Chicago Ill. 2-21-28"
Postmarked Chicago Feb 21 4am 1928 and backstamped St. Louis Feb 21 11am.



The letter inside to the young Master Rutherford is full of encouragement in his schooling (the writer is convinced he's headed for Princeton).
"...my wish for you Jack is that you shall have all that good and wholesome - fun and friends - the ambition an the modesty of the young and beloved American who shall carry this letter from Chicago to St. Louis by air plane, and all the way to you, our own Chas. A. Lindbergh."

Nice thoughts.

I had to get into the Lindbergh party. Here is the same cover as Jamesw's but dated one day earlier (2/20/1928 - same date as doodles and frampton). The return address and included letter show that it was a purely philatelic venture by Mr. Cowdrey.



This second cover is sort of cheating. Not a Lindbergh stamp or cover, but a dedication for Lindbergh Field.

Okay, there are no Polish stamps relating to Lindbergh but there is a tenuous Polish-Lindbergh connection in the form of one Sigizimund Levanevsky, born to a Polish family in St. Petersburg in 1902.

He was known in America as "the Soviet Lindbergh,"

On August 12, 1937, he & five compatriots took off from Moscow in a plane bound for the United States via the North Pole, & vanished on that flight, their remains have never been found although there is a report of 3 Inuit hunters who saw a plane go down into the sea, paddled over but found only an oil slick

USSR 1935 Sc C68 with commemorative overprint in red
(Moscow-San Francisco Flight via the North Pole, Aug. 3, 1935)
