Pay tribute to an African-American aviation pioneer with this C. Alfred “Chief” Anderson First Day Cover (#6 3/4 envelope) featuring an affixed C. Alfred “Chief” Anderson 70-cent stamp and an official First Day of Issue postmark.
C. Alfred “Chief” Anderson (1907-1996) played a crucial role in training the nation’s first black military pilots, the Tuskegee Airmen, during World War II.
The stamp art is based on a photograph of Anderson from a 1942 yearbook of the Tuskegee Institute’s flight training school, with added headgear used by pilots during the war. The standard four-bar postmark notes the stamp’s official First Day of Issue date and location.
Made in the USA.
