#MA1780 – 1933 C18 Baby Zepp on Adam K. Bert FDC

Scarce and Desirable Adam K. Bert #C18 First Day Cover – Only One Available!

On October 2, 1933, one of history's favorite US stamps was issued in new York City – #C18, also known as the "Baby Zepp" due to the stamp's smaller denomination than the other Zeppelin issues.  #C18 celebrated the arrival of the famous Graf Zeppelin and covered the 50¢ postage rate for mail traveling aboard the enormous airship.  The Zeppelin made stops in Miami and Akron before finally arriving at the Chicago World's Fair.  #C18 has five First Days of Issue – one for each city the Zeppelin stopped in, plus one each for New York and Washington. In the end, only about 32,000 of #C18 were sold – with far fewer on First Day Cover.  That means the remaining 90% of the Post Office Department's stock was destroyed,  making #C18 scarce today in any condition.  This cover was created by well-known First Day Cover dealer Adam K. Bert and is smaller sized than the usual.  It was canceled in New York City on October 2, 1933.  Get it in your collection today.
