$50

This lot containsa USS Akron dirigible cover (not flown) from May 21, 1930, as described below. The postmarks and cachets commemorate the passing of the USS Macon over various locations or Navy ships. As the USS Macon and USS Akron were military vessels, little, if any, mail was carried after the first few flights of the Akron in 1932 and two flights - one in 1933 and one in 1934 - by the Macon.

This cover commemorates the visit of the Massillon Chamber of Commerce to the construction of the AKRON. At that time Massillon (just west of Canton, 20 miles south of Akron) was the home to Republic Steel Corp, the 3# steel producer in the world.

Cover included:

5/21/1930 Akron, OH, postmark with Massillon Chamber cachet, Ullmann/Mellone's #1 for this date. The cover has the proper blue-green circular cachet and a sealed flap.

Condition is as shown in the pics. The cover shows toning but is still quite attractive.

These covers are rare, but the number made is not known.
