Some of you may have noticed that Léon Montès sheets (technically panes) material have been appearing on eBay. These items are for the most part unique, only 1 or two at best reported and have never been offered to the public until now 100 years later. For additional information on private offers please contact Abdel Nassar at: firstname.lastname@example.org
See also the Montès tab for full images of these sheets. Illustrated sheets on the Montès page have been sold, are on sale, or will be on sale privately or publicly. All images on this site are the property and copyright of Abdel Nassar (just to be clear on the image usage issue). Images will be added bit by bit. Make sure to visit often eBay and this page/site to see all the fabulous sheets from that collection.

The departure cancel from Port-au-Prince indicates a date of July 3rd, 1925, which was a Friday. Did this envelope not make the cut-off time on the 3rd, in order to be on the Saturday 4th flight? Were the American pilots celebrating US Independence Day causing there to be no flight that day?
The cover has an arrival Cap Haitian date of July 7th, which would be the first weekly flight of the week.
“… flights were made Tuesdays, Thursday, and Saturdays, …” [p.13: Early Air Mail of Haiti, Peter C, Jeannopoulos, 2010]
