Hello TALLTREES !
As far as I know there was no chance for a correct franking of 6 RM – the weight for letters was limited to 20 g, registered dispatch was not allowed and the additional postage for airmail-service in USA was far less than 2 RM (5 cent, I guess).
But it was attractive to stamp the complete set of the new German special issue; that’s how I would explain the exceeded postage.
Greetings !
Alfred

Hello again Alfred. Thanks for your explanation i suppose this was the reason for putting "BOTH STAMPS" on the cover. I have another "LARGE" cover from this flight with 2x 2RM Zeppelin postage stamps on.
Thanks again
