Airmail cover flown on the Graf Zeppelin LZ127 airship's Pan America flight from the USA in 1930. Posted on May 1st and paid for the 1st leg to Spain, it dutifully made the trip and got the Seville receiver reverse. But it was not offloaded, and so was forwarded back to the USA, where it received the special handstamp "THIS ARTICLE MADE THE COMPLETE ROUND TRIP VIA GRAF ZEPPELIN". It was again then mistakenly left on board and transported to BACK to Friedrichshafen(!), where it again was forwarded to New York (via steamer -- see note in Michel 3rd ed, p116), and upon arrival it received the Round Trip New York machine cancel dated June 23. Rare, possibly unique. Normal Mi67H (a C14 mistakenly sent on the 1st round trip) CV EUR3000; for this ????
