Featured from among our New Arrivals - Icelandic Zeppelin Mail


In May 1931 Icelandic stamps were overprinted Zeppelin/1931 in preparation for use on mail sent to Germany via the airship Graf Zeppelin (LZ-127) which was to visit Reykjavik on July 1.  She departed Friedrichshafen on June 30 for the flight to Iceland and back.  Mail was exchanged in Reykjavik.  The airship did not actually land, as there were no facilities, but it descended low enough to pass mailbags up and down. The letter shown here reached Barcelona on July 4, an amazingly short delivery time in 1931.
