1928 Graf Zeppelin - First Trans-Atlantic Crossing - Germany to U.S.
First Trans-Atlantic Crossing – Germany to U.S.
The world had never seen anything like the 772-foot, cigar-shaped dirigible on its first flight from Friedrichshafen to Lakehurst, N.J. In its cargo hold were the first airmail cards and letters sent from Europe to the United States! Few can ever hope to own these rare 85-year-old covers bearing the world's first Zeppelin stamps! Stamps and covers will vary.
