Airmail Postal History
LotNo. Symbol CatNo. Lot Description
107 cover   image1928 (Oct. 28), Graf Zeppelin First Flight Cover with Roessler 1¢ green "Graf Zeppelin", the first US-to-Germany flight, on hand-addressed Roessler cover with attractive cachet at left; franked by $1 Lincoln Memorial, 5¢ Beacon, plus 1¢ "Graf Zeppelin"-overprinted Fourth Bureau; stamps tied by two Lakehurst, NJ duplexes, with flight cachet on front (struck twice, one also tying stamps), plus Friedrichshafen 1.11.28 receiver on reverse, Very Fine.

Roessler created this overprint to make up for what he considered an serious oversight by the U.S. Post Office in failing to issue a stamp to commemorate the first flight of the Airship to the U.S. He was nearly sent to jail for creating and using printed items "in similitude of obligations of the United States". He pleaded guilty, but had his two-year sentence suspended in lieu of three years probation.
