I found a few covers to add to the census if they qualify.

And another. This one is cool since it was still sealed and contained its original Congressional content.

I don't think I have ever seen these.

This one's a bit of a "cheater" in that its not a government sanctioned marking but is found as part of a corner card. Since I'm not sure of the latitude allowed in this census, I decided to include it. Verso is blank, so not scanned.

I probably have a few more here and there, but I didn't see this style in the database... close, but not exact. Appears to be a Canadian style, including a number at the wrist.

Can someone explain the postage on back? It appears to be the same airmail rate as the front. Thanks.

The sender, of St. Louis, addressed the cover to himself c/o postmaster at Nashville. Knowing it would not be claimed at the general delivery office because he would not be there, he prepaid the return postage to avoid any delay for postage due. The prepayment could have been a POD requirement for getting the cover on the first flight noted in the cachet. The Nashville PO knew what was going on and duly canceled the stamps on the back.

That certainly makes sense. Thanks for the explanation and thanks for taking the time to respond.

Here is a Southee Movers cover from 1931. The pointing hand stamp is very much like the one on the 1924 Southee cover on page 3 of this thread.

On this marking there is no period after "UNCLAIMED".
