Hi Everyone,
I am wondering if this postcard is a reproduction?
It looks brand new, so that's why I am guessing it is not from 1930's?
I want to put it up for auction, so any help would be greatly appreciated. See below for photos.
Thank you so much,
SueStamps

I have never seen anything like this before, but I can say with confidence that this is a facsimile/reproduction. It's certainly a good looking cover!

It's definitely a reproduction. If you try to list it on a website like eBay, you're suppose to label the item as a facsimile otherwise the listing might be pulled.

How did you come across this particular cover? I have a calender from 1933 that looks like it was made yesterday, because it was within a stack of papers or whatever for decades and decades. It might be a reproduction of a German Graf Zeppelin First Day Cover, because that was the image on the German Graf Zeppelin stamp. But I don't know it's date of issue.

But this would be the German sibling of our Scott US C13, C14, & C15. If it is original, stranger things have happened, and knowing where it came from and it's history is what you need to know for sure.

These stamps were intended for use on mail that would be carried on the Zeppelins. At least in the case of our 3 releases, the vast majority of the money was to go to the German Zeppelin Airship Works, not the USPS.

If it is an adhesive stamp than it is imperforate and not real. Also the Egypt flight was in 1929 not 1930.
