German Empire 1937 - German Reich 1937 – zeppelin airship “Hindenburg” – letter transported on the last flight

Very beautiful piece, originally dispatched for the Germany circuit of the airship on the 1st of May, 1937. However, this circuit never actually commenced and the entire postal batch was instead transported with the North America circuit of the airship and airdropped from the airship in Cologne. This was the last journey of the airship, as it burned down on arrival in Lakehurst. With attractive mixed franking. With the exception of minor opening damage at the top, in very good condition with individual stamp from the Hitler block.
