This is a commemorative cover promoting National Air Mail Week. Cancelled in Wilmington
for an airmail flight to Woburn. Not sure if it ever went on a plane, but it sounded
good right? Note the 6 cent stamp. In 1938 postage for a normal letter was only 3 cents,
but would take over a week to travel across the country. For twice the price, it could get
there in a few days. The USPS stopped "Air Mail" Service in the 1950's as domestic mail
in the US was all done by air at that point.
