The first official airmail in Germany took place on May 19, 1912. Our card, which was actually flown with the Zeppelin NT in the anniversary year, is franked with the anniversary individual stamp with a picture of a Rumpler pigeon. Canceled with anniversary cancellation from Mannheim & ldquo; 100 years of 1st official airmail in Germany & ldquo; with a representation that matches the brand image.
Correct transportation with the Zeppelin NT is confirmed by the affixed on-board seal brand & ndash; with additional imprint of the first official flight mail cancellation stamp & ndash; and the on-board stamp of the airship.
On the occasion of the "Mannheim Flight Day" on May 19, 1912, the first official air mail in Germany was transported on the overland flight to Heidelberg. For this purpose special cards were issued, which were sold for 20 pfennigs. These had to be thrown into a special mailbox in order to be given a special stamp .
First time & ndash; and that's what sets them apart from their predecessors & ndash; an official airmail cancellation stamp was used.
The back of this jubilee receipt shows a reproduction of the card from 1912.
