A 1999 non-philatelic cover from the Bahamas with a border of traditional red and blue parallelograms of four thin lines. The variation of the airmail designation is the simulated cancel in the lower left corner with airmail markings inside the dial. The parallelograms are also printed on the reverse.

A very contemporary (2003) cover out of Canada with an airmail border of parallelograms with "air mail" boxes at regular intervals and separated in the center by a V. The design is continued on the reverse minus the "air mail" boxes.

A 1947 non-philatelic cover from French Equatorial Africa with an unusual airmail border of red & blue Caduceus-like symbols. The symbols are wings with diagonal Par Avion thru their centers. Stamps cover most of the top row.

The symbols are also printed on the reverse.

From Caracas, Venezuela, a non-philatelic cover with a border of standard red & blue bars divided by a winged globe. The airmail border is repeated on the reverse.

Here is a nice plain non-philatelic cover from New Zealand, carrying the (now defunct) NAC airmail label.



Another plain envelope with NAC label, this time registered in Dunedin.

Here is a plain non-philatelic cover from Egypt to the aircraft company A.V. Roe in Manchester in 1936. It is addressed to R H Dobson, who had become Works Manager by 1939. The factory closed in 1947.



Another from Egypt, plain cover with a circular cachet (anyone know what it means?), posted 1948.

An obviously philatelic cover carrying stamps of 3 kings - George V, Edward VIII and George VI. The first transatlantic flight, northern route. There must be loads of these out there, but I like it!

A piece of hotel stationery converted to personal use from Germany circa 1987. Not quite sure how to characterize the red and blue symbols making up the airmail border on this cover. The design is also printed on the reverse.

A Christmas-related airletter from Costa Rica without year date, but circa 1961 based upon the issue date of the stamp, Sc. C325. Partial airmail border of parallelograms with a correo aereo.

Nice pre-printed etiquette in Greek on an otherwise plainish non-philatelic cover from, uh, Greece.

Cheers,

This cover from Peoples Republic of China looks like it might have carried a personal letter to a relative, a husband perhaps. Not sure how to categorize the airmail symbols on the top and bottom edges. They continue on the reverse. The airmail etiquette at the bottom left is printed, the one at top right is a stick-on.
