Pretty blue cover with dark blue bars to accent the AIR MAIL and CORREO AEREO.

I also like those 1948 Labor (May) Day stamps; bits of the postmark give the guy on left some awesome CGI pecs.

Cheers,

Here is a wartime airmail cover from occupied Rotterdam, Holland to Paterson N.J., USA. Cover is postmarked 16 October, 1941. Large violet rubber stamp indicates transatlantic airmail service from Lisbon to New York. Cover is franked with reprinted gull definitives which were overprinted to show their value and obliterate the country name "Nederland."

German censor markings on the back include violet boxed censor #, and violet handstamps of the Wehrmacht tying censor sealing tape. The sealing tape bears the code letter "e", which at this time signifies Nancy, France...a branch of the Frankfurt censor center which handled mail going to southern France, Switzerland, and North and South America.

This domestic airmail cover of New Zealand made two flights. The first was from Palmerston North to Dunedin, and the second was from Dunedin back to Palmerston North. Then the cover was delivered to the recipient in Auckland.

The air distance between Palmerston North (North Island) and Dunedin is 460 miles, or 740 kilometers.

The envelope has a huge "airplane-bird inscribed in circle" watermark which continues onto the back. The winged medallion image and the VIA AEREA inscription are solidly imprinted on the lining side of the envelope.

The medallion is inscribed "693" and this number is repeated in the large watermark. So, it is probably the manufacturer's style # for the envelope.
