Wanted - 1931 Kingsford Smith's World Flights illustrated cover

Post by AlanLogue »

I am looking for another illustrated cover similar to this one.

The difference is that I want it with the corrrect date of 19 March 1931.

If it is signed by Kingsford Smith, that would be great, but I'm not too fussed - I would just like another similar cover to this one.

Any information to alan dot logue at hotmail dot com

This is a very rare cover, being cancelled a day before issue of the stamps Alan. A $500 item. ACSC records one other, also from Melbourne.

Being Registered even more sought after as not a backdate. What dates are backstamps?
