DescriptionHoward Hughes: Fully Signed Flight Crew Cover. In July 1938, Howard Hughes and three crew members flew around the world - just one of the reclusive tycoon's accomplishments. This souvenir cover was carried on that flight. It is signed by Hughes and his crew (Dick Stoddard, Harry Connor and Edward Lund). It has postmarks from New York, Paris and Moscow and cancelled postage stamps from the U.S.S.R., France and America. It also bears a rubber stamp indicating the cover was "Flown Around the World" in a flight that took 91 hours, 14 minutes and ten seconds. The item is in mint condition and quite unusual, we believe, with good crossover appeal.

As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
