Subject: [aerophilately] How best to divest of aviation philatelic items

 
I have a binder full of BEP souvenir cards, leather-bound (?) Rocket mail item, and numerous CAM covers, cachets, carrier-damaged pieces, old airmail pilot/plane photos, and others. So far, my first attempts - to auction BEP souvenir cards on ebay - have been unsuccessful. Is this pretty much the expected result? Now, am wondering if it's even worth the effort to list all the other items.
Any thoughts on how, or where to attempt to sell off these items?
Can post pics if that would help, but am shy about even expending the efforts to research and describe all this stuff.
Insights appreciated.

Tough question. Right now we have a president for life mostly because nobody wanted the job. We are in the election cycle right now.

Does the AAMS still need a New President?  Can we use this forum to facilitate a discussion on this?

1918

smpostmus@...
 

In continuation to 1925 Natiional First Flight my friend asked the question about the concept of First Flights: Is it the first mail flown from a location: Or is it the first mail flown from one location to another? know that the first Airmail flight was 1918.

1925 National Airmail Flight

smpostmus@...
 

A friend has asked me to research information about the 1925 National Airmail Flight Washington to New York and then on to San Francisco. I do not think this was the first national Airmail Flight.
He has a cover for the event which is an unofficial FDC for the Woodrow Wilson stamp (Scott 624) and others including the purple victory stamp.

Re: Collections and info

Dear Susan,

The correct term for what you call "First Day Flight Covers" is "first flight covers".  A first day cover is only a cover cancelled on the first day of issue of a new stamp, and has nothing to do with a flight.

I collect air crash covers.

Regards,

Ken Sanford

Hello All!


I am interested in what everyone collects.  If you could jot a note about your focus that would be great!


I currently am in the process of focusing my collection.  So far I have some USA First Day Flight Covers

FAMS and PAN AM.  FDC with Aerophilately Focus.  


I just currently found information about National Airmail Week May 15/21 1938.  I am looking for certain of those Covers.


Here is an interesting site:     Aerodacious

Re: AAMS at NY2016

Sorry. I didn't end that message. By the end of the war the ATC was flying more aircraft that any organization since then. Unfortunately the generals who ran that thought they should become the world's cargo carrier. That didn't go so well in Washington nor from the commercial carriers. They seemed to forget that this was a government subsidized operation. However the ATC did a great job getting the world armies supplied through the war. Mail was one of those jobs.

In 1941 as the US prepared for war the Army was given the job of preparing to transport large amounts of cargo and aircraft. They built what became known as the Air Transport Command. This command ended up in charge of transport of aircraft to the allies as well as cargo and personnel. Some the work was done by contractors and Pan American was one of the largest. This command worked in the Atlantic and the Pacific throughout the war. By the end of the war the ATC
Hope that helps.
