 U.S. #C24
1939 30¢ Winged Globe

Transatlantic Airmail Issue Issue Date:  May 16, 1939
City: New York, NY
Quantity:  19,768,150
Printed By: Bureau of Engraving and Printing
Printing Method: Flat plate printing
Perforations:
11
Color: Dull blue

The success of the first trans-Pacific airmail flight in 1935 led to talk of service to Europe. On May 6, 1939, the postmaster announced that a 30¢ airmail stamp would be issued for the new service. The design would be the same winged globe but the phrase “Trans-Atlantic” would be added.
 
On May 20, 1939, trans-Atlantic airmail service was inaugurated. At noon on that day, the Pan American Airways’ “Yankee Clipper” took off from Port Washington, Long Island, on the first leg of its official first flight to Europe. The new trans-Atlantic service prompted the issuance of this 30¢ Airmail stamp.
 
The first trans-Atlantic airmail flight was from New York to Marseilles, France.
