Later use of the Luposta Stamps.

The special stamps from Luposta, which were published on 17.7.32, were valid after the Exhibition closed, until 31.1.38. From the post-Exhibition period, there are complete series of mailings using Luposta stamps. A lot of mail even carried the complete 5-value special stamps. The pages you find hereafter are interesting not only to collectors, bus some will be surprised to find where in the world the poststamps showed up. Also, the stamps were mailed with other Airships besides the Graf Zeppelin, such as the Hindenburg, which was flying the American service route since 1936.

'The International airpost Exhibition Luposta 1932 Danzig' was at that time an EVENT which received attention from all over Europe. Their postal history receives attention even today, not only from philatetists, but also from many other people, who feel themselves connected with their Tradition and Loyalty to Danzig. There is certainly a lot more that could bring back additional memories of Luposta that is unknown until now and therefore not a part of this publication. Further information and correspondence are welcome, in order to complete this documentation and to correct possible errors.
