Moving to a category of borders that incorporate stars in the design. This 1928 first-flight cover used a paste-on strip of alternating rectangles and stars to designate the envelope as airmail.

A few stars to emphasize the Via Air Mail marking.

One of the most understated first flight covers I have ever seen!

Another cover with just a few stars to separate the corner and center lines. This design is also fully reporduced on the reverse and I show it to illustrate R. Courtney's observation about how much of the border design's impact is lost due to the clutter caused by stamps, postmark, address, and cachet.

Hi Laurie;

I think a "free" franked letter would have gone surface mail, but, for me, still a nice cover for the "keep 'em flying" slogan bottom left. I have a small collection of those too. I would not categorize the inscription in the top left as an airmail designation, but rather "military service specific" stationery.

A border with stars separating the lines at the corners and centers similar to the one posted on 11/29 above, except the lines on this cover are made with small rectangles and the border is not repeated on the reverse.

A couple of shooting stars designs five years apart. The design repeats on the reverse of both covers.
