Air Mail Covers
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,"
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."
