Perceived Value

(Spain) Acceptance from Spain for Argentina, pre-printed Spanish Air France registered cover postmarked Cadiz April 1, 1935 addressed to Buenos Aires with arrival b/s April 11th. Large "Viva Cristo Rey" sticker on back. It is known that mail left Paris on April 6th to be carried on all-air service using the Santos Dumont (flight 15A) but known examples of that mail have an arrival b/s in Buenos Aires of April 9th. It is possible that this cover was flown to Dakar but arrived too late for the Santos Dumont flight and put on board the usual aviso instead. In other words, there may have been two sets of mail for that date, the mail gathered in Paris for a direct Toulouse/Marseille - Dakar- Natal flight,and the mail picked up on the way which followed the usual plane-aviso scenario. Collot and Cornu do not expand on this possibility.
