About This Item

This naval officer served as second in command of the ill-fated airship Shenandoah or ZR-I, which broke into three parts over Ohio on September 3, 1925, killing 14 of her crew of 43; filled with nonflammable helium, most of the crew survived the disaster. Partly-printed ADS, 1p, 6½" X 2 3/4", Washington, DC, 1924 February 6. Very good. Check drawn on the Riggs National Bank, with a handsome vignette of the bank at the left, filled out to Wallace Brothers Machine Works for $49.90 and signed by Hancock. Normal cancellation perforations, touching upon the recipient's name but not on Hancock's signature. Unusual.
