The "Commander's" Collection of Zeppelin Flights & Related - October 11-13, 2023

The “Commander’s” Collection of Zeppelin Flights and Memorabilia was formed by a life-long passionate and knowledgeable collector, who wished to remain anonymous. He enjoyed the hobby for over seven decades and was a dear friend and colleague; we shared many a story and enthusiastic conversation about numerous acquisitions and potential purchases, and enjoyed the descriptions of other collections. He was also very close with the late Gerhard Wolff, whose collection we were privileged to sell, in association with Heinrich Koehler, when I was with Nutmeg Stamp under Greg Manning Auctions, Inc. That sale was simulcast on Skype in both Bethel, CT and Wiesbaden, Germany—the very first of its kind. The Commander’s collection also will be live on two bidding platforms: Stamp Auction Network and PhilaSearch Live.

Both the scope and depth of this collection—which consists of over 1300 lots within the pages of this catalog—are astounding. Three Hindenburg Crash covers are the most obvious highlight. You will find Pioneer Flights and Early Zeppelin Flights, which include Nobile’s Norge N-1, credited as the first aircraft to fly over the North Pole; Rhein-Main Flights; German Military Airships; USS Akron, USS Macon, USS Shenandoah and USS Los Angeles dirigibles, along with others. The Zeppelin markings contain many scarce to rare postings, frankings, destinations and routes, with several of the difficult to impossible to find Treaty State uses. Lastly, you will find some incredible memorabilia: the Zeppelin Oil Can, Harmonica, Pipe and J.A. Henckels sterling silver barware set, just to name a few of our favorites.

We know that everyone in Aerophilately will appreciate and enjoy this sale, from novice to seasoned expert.

We are truly honored to present the sale to you in both digital and printed formats.
