high-point-nc-first-flight-cover-missent-railroad-postmark-postal-history HIGH POINT NORTH CAROLINA 1928 FIRST FLIGHT COVER TO PHILADELPHIA - MISSENT - RAILROAD POSTMARK & MORE

Excellent first flight cover with a lot going for it in terms of postal markings and franking.  First it is a first flight cover from High Point, NC, sent to Portland OR. It has a Philadelphia receiver on the back which fills the first flight leg. There is also a Chicago Air Mail postmark on the back which may explain the MISSENT mark on the front.  A Baker & Portland RPO mark on the front shows it is headed to Oregon and delivery. The type III Washington 3-cent stamp is a plate number single...8588. The 2-cent Omaha has a printer tab and there is a 1-cent Columbian and 1-cent Franklin added on for good measure.  The flight is 19N7.

 japan-world-war-II-Japanese-Navy-historical-ephemera JAPAN - WORLD WAR II JAPANESE NAVAL DOCUMENT TO SAILORS - SEE DESCRIPTION

Interesting Japanese Naval document from World War II.  A Navy Commander issued orders for maintaining living standard and job arrangements for sailors-on-duty. The stamp itself is common. However the original document would have significant value if it were more than a fragment since it was printed right before Japanese surrender (April, 1945) and the issuer was one of the Japanese Navy heads. Too bad there is only a fragment of the document left. It could have been a hot item for WW II collectors.
