The W6YC call letters belonged to that Gene DeTurck guy.  (https://ellgab.com/index.php?topic=91.msg283073#msg283073)  Apparently I acquired a number of his QSL cards in a past auction.  Yes, I really like that airmail stamp too.

Thank you for the beautiful postcards, my dear, that you have sent these last couple of weeks.  I'd like to find some pretty cards for you but it's impossible in this city.  Goodbye.

If a person looks at enough air mail stamps over the years, it's a good history of flight.  If I were to collect just one category, it would probably be airmail stamps.  Here's one I like (part of a 1933 series with different colors and values):

That is a nice stamp!  I've always liked this transport plane stamp from 1944.
