Hong Kong to San Francisco cover for a connection to the Hindenburg LZ129 Zeppelin ariship's return flight from the US, which never took place due to the tragic crash. With New York May 6 CDS on the Trans-Pacific stamps -- the May 7 cancel of course never happened. Covers that didn;t make the last flight are the closest most of us will get to a Hindenburg crash cover, and additionally, this is about as close as you can get to a Chinese-franked Zeppelin cover. '17 CV only EUR500 which I think is quite low given the extreme scarcity
