Set of 4 official fund-raising postcards with unevenly divided backs urging Germans for patriotic reasons to remember zeppelin-building efforts in their wills (Zeppelin-Eckener-Spende). Rough translations follow. Upper left: One Zeppelin over German lands! Is that all we will ever see? No way! Upper right: All powers to the contrary, uphold the work! Lower left: Do German mothers want their children never to see one? Lower right: One German Zeppelin! That will happen again! Each front caption exhorting the recipient to remember the next Zeppelin building effort in their wills. The first truly successful zeppelin referred to by these postcards was the LZ3, which first flew on 9 October 1906. [The previous 2 crashed after a very few flights, discouraging most investors. The early LZ3 flights, while better, did not come up to military expectations.] The fundraising was therefore for the LZ4, first flown 20 June 1908. So the postcards date early 1907 to early 1908. All lightly toned on back from the printing process itself, all with good edges. Individually, they are seldom seen or offered; the group is unheard of. They belong in a museum. Set of 4: $50.00 bgp
