I'm wondering if this is just a generic seal that could be purchased at a stationary store if not the Post Office. If so would additional postage have to be added to make up the air rate?

The airmail label is privately made/sold and has no postal value.

The domestic airmail letter rate within the U.S. (and from the U.S. to Canada) was 10 cents from Jan 7, 1968 through May 15, 1971. The Andrew Jackson stamp pays that fully.

Wouldn't this fall under the category of airmail etiquette vs. seal or stamp?

Shame you do not have the complete cover. Plane is sort of a Constellation based on its three tails.

Thanks for the additional info rod222. I don't know if I have any more of these but I'm going to have a look now. The ink on this one is dark blue although the photo makes it look black.
