Hi Chip. Of course that is a very nice airmail cover, but I am not sure I am seeing an airmail design printed on the envelope itself. Can you make out such a preprinted design on the envelope?

I have always liked the airmail envelopes given away by Panair which is the Brazilian subsidiary of Pan Am Airways. These happen to be used on first flights, but the envelopes were used generally by passengers, customers and the public who were sending their mail on regular Panair of Brazil provided service. The preprinted designs are the VIA AEREA in the rectangle at the upper left, the read line across the envelope just above half-way, the great image of the aircraft and a steward and line of passengers at the lower left, and the VIA PANAIR or PAN AMERICAN AIRWAYS SYSTEM at the bottom right or along the bottom edge. And, if you look closely there is a light overall design of the Pan Am Airways logo of the winged globe printed all over the envelopes as a background design.
