I would like to share some of my Zeppelin covers. I have found very little information or examples regarding this flight from Berlin (Oct 8, 1919) to Stockholm Sweden (Oct 8, 1919) with green arrival cancellation on front and backstamped at postoffice Stockholm.
It's adressed to Nordiska Kompaniet (The Nordic Company) which was one of the more exclusive department store in Stockholm (Inaugurated Sept 21, 1915).

Any feedback is welcome.

Didn't realise these stamps are worth a bit, I may have some in my box of unsorted stamps.

Hi Roadrunner,

This cover is a Sieger Nr. 19.K, Printed matter rate. Only thing and I would check is the green receiver. The example in the Sieger Catalogue, the 8 is straight under the B. May be nothing but a good certificat would be great.

Nice cover indeed!

The route on 08.10.1919 was: Berlin/Staaken- stockholm and return.

Thank you all for feedback.

I havn't had the opportunity to compare the green receiver with other examples before. I agree that the one shown in Siegers cat. is slightly different, but that's not from an actual cover I believe? The example at Christ-Stamps in the link from perf12 above https://www.christ-stamps.com/en/i_...773&row_nr=2, shows two green receiver cancellation and the top inverted one shows even the left edge of the rubber stamp (before B) which also can be seen on my cover.

In K.B Spezial Band I there is also an example with the left edge visible. I don't know if it's ok to show a picture from the book here.

I would like to have an expert to look at the cover and eventually get a certificate, but I don't know where to ask. I have been in contact with Dieter Leder before in other matter, but I can't get in touch with him.
