Cuba 1920 - EDIFIL C1 - Nov. 1st 1920, Key West - Havana Pioneer First Flight Cover.
Extraordinarily rare and very early (therefore considered pioneer) First Flight cover from Key West to Havana, Cuba carried by Aeromarine West Indies Airways on FAM 1, later renamed FAM 4. Stamps cancelled with KEY WEST - NOV 1 - 10:30 AM - FLA duplex cds. FIRST TRIP - NOV - 1 - 1920 - U.S. - CUBA - AIR MAIL handstamp applied in purple on front. Backstamped on arrival with specially made CORREO AEREO - 1 NOV. 1920 - PRIMER VUELO cds. Printed return address of A.C. Roessler - East Orange - New Jersey. The EDIFIL Specialized Catalogue of the Stamps of Cuba lists this item in the VUELOS INTERNACIONALES DEL EXTERIOR A CUBA section and prices it at 850,- or around US $1165.00.- at the current rate of exchange. An extraordinarily rare item. BY THE WAY, THIS IS THE COVER USED BY EDIFIL TO ILLUSTRATE THIS FLIGHT IN THEIR CATALOGUE. NOT A SIMILAR COVER BUT "THE" COVER!
