Título: Signed First Day Cover.
Ejemplar firmado: Signed by Author(s)
This Manitou, Oklahoma postmaster and farmer bears the unusual postal and aviation distinction of being the only pilot to have flown both of the airplanes depicted on the 1976 13-cent "Commercial Aviation 1926-1976" U.S. stamp -- the "Ford Pullman" all-metal monoplane and the "Laird Swallow" biplane. Signed First Day Cover, 6½" X 3½", cancelled in Chicago, Illinois on 19 March 1976 and with "First Day of Issue" boldly stamped. Single 13-cent "Commercial Aviation" stamp at upper right. Fine. At upper right, across a printed horizontal line below the cancellation, Howell signs boldly in black ballpoint. Small portion of original transmittal envelope present and 1976 newspaper article telling Howell's aviation story. A fun aviation/philatelic oddity. N° de ref. de la librería 24398
