Hello and Thank you. I know a lot about the History of this Cover but just wanted to know any more information which i could take on board. When i first got the Cover it was sealed, and i could feel something in side ? so i carefully opended the back of the Cover but to my dissapointment it was a piece of Brown "GRAPH PAPER" with the words " CABLE LINE " at the top of one of the colums, this must have been in when the Cover was posted as it has the " THREE POSTMARK IMPRESSIONS"
embeded on the graph paper. I will submit a picture of this " GRAPH PAPER " which was found in side the Cover, and then you might recognize what it is ???. If you look carefully on the graph paper you can see the Three Postmark indentations.
Thanks again.

Hello!
This is very easy to explain. Letters for collectors have often been sent out without contents.
However, some collectors have put a little paper or cardboard in the letters, so that the letters
is stable and doesn't crease.
I have already found old postcards or forms in the letters.
This one squeezes are the stamp come from the outside to inside.
Best greetings!
Steffen

Hello. I thought it fitting on this day (1.5. 2012) to show these "2" pieces of mail from my collection of the 1937 "GERMANY FLIGHT" (1.5.37) , as it is well known this flight was cancelled due to bad weather, pieces of mail intended for this flight received the red failure stamp (Ausfall Stamp) as well as the BSt and/or BPSt, then on the "3.5.37" this mail was put on the 1937 "1 NAF" and dropped over Cologne on the outward flight and received the Cologne arrival stamp "3.5.37. 23-24" (there are different versions of the arrival stamp).
