The mail carried on the airship Graf Zeppelin was dropped over Barcelona and was delivered to the Main Post Office by a passer-by. The arrival was certified by a very bad and careless imprint of the usual machine cancellation “Barcelona”. As transportation certification, the airship used a smaller red rubber stamp (6 by 53 mm) which is the same in text and execution as the cancellation used for both preceding trips.
