RUSSIA Air Post
1935 Moscow-San Francisco, surcharged 1r on 10k, small "f" (in San Francisco), used on registered and flown cover from Moscow (August 2), with letter ("I send you with this letter our rarest stamp - with flight of Levanevsky through the North Pole to S.Francisco. Now every man here could buy only one stamp, but I get for you one on the envelope") addressed to Mr. W.C.Steiger in New York, with bilingual "Special Air Flight Moscow-San Francisco through the North Pole" cachet, v.f., signed Mikulski and Diena. Three Soviet fliers, Sigismund Levanevsky, George Baidukov and Victor Levchenko, took off from Schlovsky Military Airport near Moscow in the red-winged Soviet monoplane "O 25" at 6:30 A.M. on a 6,000 mile non-stop flight to San Francisco, via the North Pole. Flying over Siberia and 700 miles across the Arctic Ocean, the plane developed problems, and on radio instructions, the fliers returned to their base. This cover was actually carried by Levanevsky on this ill-fated flight and returned to Moscow. A certificate from Mr. Mikulski (1985) states that this cover is a great Air Post and Russian rarity
