Rhode Island Air Mail Covers
May 21, 1938 Air Mail Cover to Cranston, RI
National Air Mail Week (NAMW) with Cachet

The Air Mail cover above was sent on the last day (May 21, 1938) of "National Air Mail Week," (NAMW) It was sent from Providence, Rhode Island to Cranston and  the stamp is the "6-cent Eagle holding Shield, Olive Branch and Arrows" issued on May 14, 1938. The colors are dark-blue and carmine, (Scott #C29). This cover appealed to me because of the great cachet, which shows a map of the Hillsgrove Airport and Roger Williams landing at Providence with the greeting, "What Cheer."
