Pan Am: New York-Monrovia
A set of Liberian stamps celebrating service between Monrovia-Robertsfield and New York's Idlewilde Airport. Not entirely sure if this is a "first day cover" of the service; the image is small and difficult to read, but its at least visible as a Pan Am clipper. The service would run along various routes until about 1986, with Pan Am withdrew from Africa entirely.
