    [Aviation] Orville Wright and First Flight Witness John T. Moore Signed 1938 Airmail Covers. As follows.
    (1) A cover cancelled at Dayton, Ohio, on May 19, 1938, with a stamped cachet celebrating National Air Mail Week at the home of the Wright Brothers. It is signed in black ink: "Orville Wright" diagonally at upper left. Addressed, lightly toned, very fine.
    (2) A similar cover, this one cancelled at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, on the same day with a cachet celebrating National Air Mail Week at the site of the Wright Brothers first flight.

    A nice and historic pair for displaying together.
