In 1925 the Treaty of Locarno removed the ban which had prevented Germany from building airships. This opened the way for the construction of the GRAF ZEPPELIN, finally affording Dr. Eckener the opportunity to fulfill his dream of establishing a transatlantic commercial airship service.
However the German government was not receptive to providing financial assistance for such an endeavor. The German people, however, intrigued by Zeppelins and enthusiastic for their return to the skies rescued Eckener from his financial plight.
In addition to outright public contributions to the Zeppelin Eckener Fund various items including thiscard were made and sold to fund the construction of the GRAF ZEPPELIN AIRSHIP. This example is in wonderful like new condition with the colors bold and bright and sharp corners.Many of these were lost or damaged after use. This one is perfect just as made in 1925.
