Luxembourg to United States
November 8, 1933

This attractive airmail cover includes all four stamps from the airmail set issued in 1931:
75c dark brown, 1fr red, 1¼fr dark violet, and 1¾fr dark blue (Scott C2-C5).
Two other denominations were added to the set in 1933.

There are three Luxembourg Ville III CDS.

The airmail portion of this cover's carriage was just between Luxembourg and Paris.
It then proceeded to New York via rail and ship.

Although this cover has limited postal history interest,
it is certainly a pretty item to put into a collection.
