Category: NEW GUINEA - Mandated Territory - Aerophilately & Flight Covers

Description: 1928 (June 28) Wau-Lae ACSC #P12a endorsed "By Air" franked with Huts 3d with typed 'AIR MAIL' & pre-cancelled with 'EDIE CREEK' cds, tied by 'GUINEA AIRWAYS LTD/WAU' h/s & signed in pencil by the co-pilot "AS Cross", faint vertical fold, Cat $2000. A key rarity: only 2 covers flown. Ex Alan Grey. [Carried by horse/mule Edie Creek- Wau and onwards per Junkers J34. Tom Frommer's example sold at our auction of 4.4.2017 for $3360]

Interstingly, it is clear that the stamp was cancelled before being affixed. We're also confident that this cover, being addressed to the Health Department at Salamaua, is a commercial item!
