Hi all. I just joined this community. I'm a collector of flown Zeppelin covers and postcards featuring C13-15 and the C18 Baby Zepp. Looking to connect with likeminded. Here's a cover from my collection that I thought people might enjoy seeing. Best to all.

Hi @ MurphThePerf,
fyi, a bunch of Zeppelin covers are being sold today (Friday 3/31) one-at-a-time from ck on e* including some C18s and a lot of Akron, Macon, and some newer commemorative covers. Based on the beautiful cover that you posted, there may not be anything there of interest to you, but it looks like he is breaking up a large collection so maybe there are some scarcer flights there, I don't know. fyi.

Murph, not a collector of covers and generally don't comment as such; but that's a very attractive piece you have there!

Here's another nice Zepp cover to start our week off right. This cover was in a Siegel sale a few years back before finding its way to me. Hope you enjoy.

1933 Century of Progress Flight.
Miami to Seville, Spain.
Sieger 242C; Michel LZ 127-354Cb.

According to U.S. postal regulations, mail for the airship's return flights to Seville and Friedrichshafen was only to be accepted at Akron or Chicago. In spite of this, some mail intended for Seville and Friedrichshafen was dispatched at Miami. These items were offloaded at Chicago, postmarked and forwarded by surface mail to Akron to connect there for the second Akron flight back to Europe. Proper franking for these two flights should be $1.00 50 for each leg.

Because of this regulatory restriction, the Miami-Seville and Miami-Friedrichshafen legs of the Century of Progress Flight are the rarest for U.S. mail featuring the C18 stamp.

This cover is underfranked by 50 cents, but escaped the eyes of the Zeppelin postal officials and was flown to Seville. Back of cover shows 10/26/1933 Chicago and 11/01/1933 Seville receiver marks.
