Don, in your post with the China cover (October 6th) you said 'Not sure how to categorize the airmail symbols on the top and bottom edges'. I reckon they must be aircraft tails (vertical stabiliser and rudder).
Regards

Hi DavidR:

Yes, vertical fin and rudder, a good possibility. That will do for my album write-up.

Thanks for your comment.

Don

This July 2, 1946 post-WWII airmail cover from Pannarano, Italy to North Bergen, NJ, USA features a thin, somewhat crudely printed security paper. The inside printing shows a group of people looking up at an airplane in flight. Pannarano is a small municipality (pop. ca. 2000) about 45 km northeast of Naples.

Don't have a clue of the meaning of the numbering on the lower left of the cover.

bookbndrbob:

The numbers at the lower left are from the North Bergen post office.

For some reason, the letter could not be delivered as addressed. I see what may be a number "70?8" on Broadway as an address, but apparently no one with the addressee's name was found there.

I can't make out the two words to the left of the numbers but it likely said something like "Route" or "Carrier". The list of numbers represent the carrier routes, and someone (probably the original carrier) at the post office went to each carrier and asked if they recognized the addressee name. When a route could not identify the addressee, their number was marked off. Apparently the addressee was found, and the letter delivered, since there are no "Return to Sender" markings.

Thanks mml1942! I will put this information with the cover.

The scope of knowledge on SCF continues to impress.

A 1978 non-philatelic, registered cover from Trinidad & Tobago with a combination of red and blue shapes and vertical bars for the airmail service designation. The shapes on the top and bottom edges are on the reverse, the bars not.

A 1959 personal cover from Isreal to West Germany with an airmail border of red & blue very "fat-winged" aircraft. An unusual aircraft airmail border variety.

Here is another Post-WWII airmail cover. This one is from Tasin (?) Romania to Philadelphia, Pa., USA. It was mailed from Romania on March 26, 1947 and arrived at NYC Registry Division on April 1. The next day, it was in Philadelphia. I am guessing that the "02420" marking on the front is the Romanian registry marking. There are light blue, perforated PAR AVION labels on both sides.

Franking is 29,700 lei, indicating a serious inflation problem.
