Germany # C41 on Graf Zeppelin Post Card

A very scarce flown card franked with the 2 mark ultramarine Graf Zeppelin airmail, overprinted "Polar Fahrt 1931". Put in Berlin drop mail, then posted on board the Graf Zeppelin July 31st, 1931 and flown to the Russian ice breaker "Malygin" in the arctic, where a receiving stamp of July 27th was applied. The card itself is a Byron Harmon black and white real-photo "Bow Lake" and the card is addressed to Banff Alberta (an uncommon final destination). A VF quality piece of postal history from the Golden Age of airships. 2017 Scott Classic for #C41 on card US$350.00=
