Perceived Value

(Paraguay) Cover sent from Asuncion (Paraguay) postmarked June 26, 1936 to Manchester (U.K.) with no arrival b/s but a Paris Avion transit b/s of July 6, 1936. Scarce Scott C100 (2 pairs) and C39. Even though the weekly 100% air service was inaugurated in January 1936, the shortage of planes prevented from offering a regular weekly service at least for the first few months of that year. Return flights occurred on June 29 and July 14 so this cover, probably barely missing the June 29 flight, was sent by the old-fashion air-sea service which was still in operation to supplement the full-air service.
