Condition: 1933 BALBO MASS FLIGHT POSTER STAMPS BOOKLET
FROM DR MIGLIAVACCA'S CERTIFICATE --- ITALY, JULY-AUGUST 1933, 10th Anniversary of Italy's Royal Airforce: NORTH ATLANTIC MASS FLIGHT (Orbetello-Chicago-New York-Rome) led by General Italo Balbo, in which 25 S.I.A.I. Marchetti S.55X Seaplanes participated. Poster Stamps Booklet (Special English Edition type) containing a complete set of five different mint Miniature Sheets. Each Miniature Sheet consists of six examples of one of the five designs adopted for the Poster Stamps issued on the occasion of the historic Transatlantic Flight [Longhi: Aerofilia Italiana 2972 33AAg]. I have examined the above-described Booklet issued for the historic 1933 Balbo Mass Flight; the cover and its five different Miniature Sheets are photographically reproduced here. The front cover of the Booklet presents two negligible tears mentioned for accuracy; moreover it must be noted that the early and wise removal of the Booklet's staples has prevented any rust stains from developing — an often-encountered blemish affecting many similar items I have examined in the past, but luckily enough not this Booklet and its content. In my opinion the Booklet cover and the five Miniature Sheets are genuine in all respects and in very fine condition. I signed each of the five Miniature Sheets on the recto upper left margin with my initials - “GM” - in pencil ———————— This certificate is printed on acid-free High Security paper with features that may partially show if photocopied or scanned, including microprint, watermark, hidden pantograph, erasure protection etc.
