I am curious as to what the membership would think of a AEROGRAMME and or Aircraft related Postal Stationery theme posts?

Aerogrammes , in my opinion are a MOST underrated collectable! There are bunches of them out there, with varieties of major ones making the total a large number to collect!

On the other hand, aircraft related postal stationery is not as large, but for those who like planes, a fun way to seek new material for the collection.

I, for one, collect for the enjoyment of collecting, NOT for building up a monetary hedge fund over the years for my estate to deal with. How many of you are like that?

Both of these topics have material that can be obtained at reasonable prices, if you go to the right places, or pay a lot for if going to the wrong places.

Here are a couple of what I am talking about. Rare, probably not! Fun to obtain and result in a great addition to my collection? Yep!

The first will be a scan of a CEYLON aerogramme, that has several varieties (some with the lower stamp (Ceylon for quality teas), some without. Issued 1969




The second is a nice aircraft related postal stationery envelope from North Korea! Issued 2004. Shows a nice shot of the Concorde aircraft!




Those were just two of so many out there. Aerogrammes were around for maybe 50 years (+/-). Envelopers have had aircraft related items for many more years.

If there is a good enough interest level, I will post more. If not, I thank you all for reading this and enjoy your collecting. I do.

OK. Here are three items , two of which are common CANADA items and the third is a Germany Special Order Postal Stationery Envelope celebrating Stuttgart & Lufthansa Service. Enjoy

The first two are Canada Aerogrammes, FG-7 1948 (smaller of two items) and Canada FG-3 1947 (larger of two envelopes.




The next item is a Germany Special Order Envelope celebrating Lufthansa and Stuttgart. Issued in 1986.



Enjoy

Thanks for starting this thread! I always enjoy seeing the aerogrammes of different countries, perhaps because countries have a little more space to convey a message, show a little personality, etc. So please keep posting!

I have in the past collected Japanese postal stationery, including aerogrammes, as a sideline. I'm not really active with it now, and my accumulation is in storage, but when I dig it out, I'll post some of the aerogrammes here.

I'm not a collector of aerograms, but do collect aircraft on covers and have acquired an aerogram or two as a result.

Here is one I collected for the stamp-like indicia depicting a Concorde aircraft in flight. It is enhanced by the Paris pictorial cancel of two other Concordes.

On the item that Rodney posted featuring St Andrews, the little sketch of the two golfers, next to the area for the sender's name and address, appears to be Bing Crosby and Bob Hope.

Doing a little Googling, apparently Crosby played there quite a bit. Hope seems to have played there as well, although not as much.

There is an article or two that *may* describe them both there at the same, but they're behind paywalls. However, there is this book review of Crosby's golfing interest, written by his son, in which he describes Crosby and Hope played golf together to fundraise for charities.

Number two of two aerograms that I have collected. This one with paper airplanes flying around the border of the folded sheet. While I would not hesitate to put a paper airplane cover in my aviation collection, this one was collected for my variant airmail borders collection. An unusual airmail border design!
