  • U.S.S. Akron Photo in Duralumin Frame from Airship Construction - 1931

    SKU: 21-ZEPP-351

     Photo is of the Akron on first roll-out on October 21, 1931.  Likely this piece commemorated the christening of the Akron on Oct 27, 1931; perhaps given to distinguished guests.  Detailed label on reverse says the frame is aluminum but the corners are from actual Akron Duralumin from construction.  The center paragraph on the label gives specifications of the Goodyear-Zeppelin Dock while the bottom paragraph gives Akron Specs in comparison to the Graf Zeppelin.  Frame is 10x8", very good condition.

  • Airship "Akron" Duralumin Ashtray

    SKU: 21-ZEPP-350

     Stamped ashtray (4.5" diameter) with text around the flat:  "Duralumin", "Used in the Airship Akron", "Goodyear Zeppelin Corporation".  Additionally there is a 1.25" shield picturing the Akron in the center-bottom with similar text to that stamped on the lip of the ashtray.  Very good.  One of the nicer Akron souvenirs and in very good condition.

  • Misc. Airship Parts Lot - circa 1937

    SKU: 21-ZEPP-348

     A group of aluminum and steel relic pieces, reportably from an airship circa 1937.  Two of the items bear tags from a Florida antique shop which would provide a start for more provenance research.  The items ae roughly:  1) a u-shaped riveted girder piece, about 6" on a side, 2) a steel turnbuckle with rubber grommets in the ends and a wire at one end (control cable?), 3) a small (4") aluminum girder piece with two smaller pieces riveted at one end, 4) a large (3.5") wing nut with a 1/2" threaded center, and 5) a bundle of about 50 aluminum tubes (6" long) that look like they might be cut from a radiator; some are loose, others fused together.  Of course, the "story" is that these are from the Hindenberg!  All in relic condition as you might expect.  SOLD

    SKU: 21-PRTS-12

     A complete sextant in the original wood box.  Sextant has data plate as does the wooden box.  Seems to be complete with plastic disc envelope, lead pencil envelope and an instruction envelope that refers to T.O. 05-35-12.  Very good original condition, name O'Connor stenciled on box lid.  Only flaw is one hinge on top of box is broken.
