German Airship Commander Hugo Eckener was at the helm of the zeppelin during its flight around the world. Eckener first flew from Friedrichshafen to Lakehurst, NJ in early July of 1929.
The Round-The-World Flight officially began on August 7 from Lakehurst to Friedrichshafen. The airship then left Friedrichshafen on August 15 bound for Tokyo. On August 23 it left Tokyo and arrived at Los Angeles on August 26 where it left for Lakehurst, NJ on August 27. The envelope has a Los Angeles postmark of August 26 when it went on its way to Mr. Charles Schmidt, 1030 Hudson Avenue, Woodcliff, New Jersey.
The back of the envelope is stamped with the Graf Zeppelin Round-The-World Flight green stamp, and with the Aug. Stamp when it arrived there.CONDITION: Excellent - the envelope has never been opened, but it does contain something inside. It says "MOVIES - ENTERTAINMENT - DANCING", but we can't make out anything else. Because it has never been opened, the original integrity of the envelope has not been compromised.
