120      329    16th flight to South America 7 — 12 November.

Only printed matter, trade samples and packets in addition to on board mail were forwarded on the 8th to the 14th South American flights. Sendings from Danzig to be collected are thus only in the form of printed matter or trade samples. Once again there were no special handstamps for these South American flights and mail is mainly properly franked and non-philatelic. The 1st to the 7th and the 15th and 16th South American flights are again found with the forwarding endorsement handstamps that were used in 1934.
