GERMANY – SANKE CARD – NAVY LUFTSCHIFF L. II – AT JOHANNISTEEL – NR 206
This is a very early Sanke card Nr 206. It shows the Navy Luftschiff L. II at the landing field at Johannisteel which was outside of Berlin.
Zeppelin postcards are very scarce. This card has an interesting reverse. There is a paper stamp which shows the L. II. On it says “Luftfaherdank Wohfahrtsmarke”. Also on the reverse is penned “1913″.
The card is in excellent condition and has never been mailed.
Sanke cards grew out of the early medium of postcards and are now an invaluable documentation of German flyers who, for a short time in aviation history, were at the top of their profession.
