An illustrated commercial cover from a Hong Kong custom tailor that I collected for its different, ribbon-like airmail border. The cover is franked with Hong Kong Sc. 498, the $1.30 stamp from the 1987 ER II definitive set.

I was listing for sale some of the covers I got from a recently acquired collection, and came across this interesting cover. An Air-Mail cover to Pan American Director of the Southeast Asia Office.



I was able to find a Wikipedia page on the guy.

I not a cover collector so I listed it for sale on eBay. Here is the link if anyone is interested.

Came across this interesting air mail cover carried ay high altitude balloon apparently from Steinhuserburg, Switzerland to somewhere Colorado, USA.

I researched this event and pilot Fred Holder but didn't come up with anything definitely enough worthy of posting here. Any input?

I especially like the local post of the 10c Balloon Mail stamp.

A recently acquired 1946 cover out of Buenos Aires that I bought to add to my Variant Airmail Borders collection. Lightning bolts around the edges, plus appropriately colored U.S., U.K., and Argentinian contrails trailing the airplane. Unusually clean cancel, too. While this cover seems chronologically early, the "ERGON" in the lower right corner may refer to the petroleum-related company of that name.
