image 1928 (July) Rocket flown souvenir lettersheet, carried by Rocket V1 test flight, numbered "04" (out of only 19 carried), signed Schmiedl (a similar item brought $1,400 in our September 2017 sale) (Friedrich Schmiedl, educated in civil engineering, became fascinated in the practical aspects of rocketry and began development and testing of solid propellant rockets in 1921. He first tested his designs at Schoeckl bei Graz in 1924, concentrating on tests of "photographic rockets", which could map large areas from high altitude. In June 1928 he attempted flight tests of instrumented rockets that were to be launched from stratospheric balloons. In 1930 Schmiedl launched further rockets from Schoeckl, perfecting a parachute recovery system. His first successful post office rocket on 2 February 1931 transported 100 letters from Schoeckl to Sankt Radegund. He began with what he called "regular mail service" in September 1931 with launch of his G1 rocket from Hochtroetsch to Semriach. Schmiedl refused to participate in development of military rockets, either for the Nazis or the Americans and died in 1994) (Cat No. 2C1) (Image)
