Germany # CL2, CL4

Two 1912 Semi-Official Airmail cards, each one franked with a 5pf green "Germania" but different semi-officials (CL2, CL4). These special mails were carried between Darmstadt and Frankfurt am Main by either the airship "Schwaben" or airplane "Gelber Hund" (Yellow Dog). The flights raised money for charities under the patronage of the Grand Duke of Hesse. Note that the #CL2 cover has filing punch-holes. Still a great early pair of airmail cards. 2020 Scott Classic US$305.00=
