Description

Lifting aircraft and spirits worldwide, feminist icon Amelia Earhart was a record setting aviator recognized as the first woman to fly across the Atlantic Ocean. Following her first 6/17-18/28 trans-Atlantic flight in the Fokker plane “Friendship” Ms. Earhart, pilot Wilmer Stultz and mechanic/co-pilot Lou Gordon embarked on a celebratory tour. Presented is an Earhart signed “Stultz Day” cover from a tour stop in Pennsylvania. Displaying in well-kept state with minor age-appropriate wear this cover is postmarked 7/28/28 Middletown, PA and bears a commemorative stamp with the names of the historic flight crew trio. Earhart’s fantastic (“9-10”) strength autograph appears diagonally across the middle of the cover. Co-pilot Gordon’s distinct signature (“9”) is located just below that of the media dubbed “Queen of the Air”. Also present on the obverse are a Salt Lake City “First Flight” stamp which overlaps the Stultz stamp on the left and a 10-cent canceled air mail stamp at top right. An 8/12/28 Ogden, Utah postmark is the lone device appearing on the reverse. Full photo LOA from JSA.
