Charles Lindbergh – “Lucky Lindy”- Vintage Sheet Music and Pin.

Lot 698. Charles Lindbergh – “Lucky Lindy”- Vintage Sheet Music and Pin. In 1927 at the age of 25, Lindbergh became a national hero by making the first solo non-stop transatlantic flight. In 36 ½ hours, he flew his single-engine airplane, the “Spirit of St. Louis,” from New York City to Paris. His effort eclipsed the previous longest transatlantic flight by almost 2,000 miles. To honor Lindbergh, famous composer George M. Cohan wrote the song “When Lindy Comes Home.” It was published in the June 13, 1927 “Boston Evening American.” The four-page 10.5” x 14.25” insert to the newspaper is in p-f condition with numerous chips and a 5.5” horizontal tear on each page. The song and graphics are complete. Accompanying Cohan’s music is a red, white and blue pin with a photo of “Colonel Chas. ‘Plucky’ Lindbergh” and the times of his flight – “New York 7.51 A.M. May 20th Paris 5:21 P.M. May 21st.” With several thin cracks in the celluloid, the pin displays decently. Winning Bid $10.
