England 1929 Charles Denistoun Burney R100 1929 Airship Zeppelin Autograph USA Air Show
USA event cover with 5c Beacon airmail from the East St Louis airshow in 1929, autographed by inventor, navy commander, and later Vice Admiral Charles Denistoun Burney, and prominent booster for English dirigible power.

Scarce, and with a great provenance: from the estate of the original collector, John Strauss, who collected these (and everything else Zeppelin) in the period as new issues / first flights. Sent to his home in Chicago.
