ciffic2112,
Well, you've got a pretty magnificent card and stamp there. This is a German C36, it has a used value of $53 (not counting on cover). I'm not a German covers expert, so not sure what addition premium it would be on cover, but I'd have go guess at least an additional $50 - $100. Could be more if this is something significant, but your scan is too hard to see (and I'm pretty sure my German is crap).
Very nice. I suggest posting up a better image, higher resolution, particularly of the back, and perhaps someone else in the community will be able to shed more light on it than I can.
Very nice.

I feel they have history to them and, would love to share them with people and someone who would be able to translate them. hank you again. I will post them a little bit later in the day, when I get more time.

Can't see the exact day, but looks as tho the card is postmarked 1929 in NYC, so it probably flew on the LZ 127. You should be able to cross check comparable LuftPost Zeppelin cards on eBay.

That is the Graf Zeppelin North America first flight of 1929. There was a lot of mail carried on that flight but your card looks in good condition so I'd say under $100.
