On 23 September 1933, these airmail stamps were issued to commemorate the 50th ocean crossing of LZ-127, Graf Zeppelin, to the 1933 World’s Fair in Chicago.

The stamps are similar the earlier MiNr 423-424, and 455 with an overprinted inscription “Chicagofahrt Weltausstellung 1933” (Chicago Flight World’s Fair 1933).

For similar overprints, see the earlier Südamerikafahrt and Polarfahrt issues.
