The Goodyear Tire Company once had a subsidiary called the Goodyear Zeppelin Corporation which made airships for the U.S. Navy. The USS Akron and the USS Macon were the two largest helium-filled airships (785 ft. long) made by the company. A hangar section held Sparrowhawk airplanes that took flight and were retrieved while the airships flew. The rigid frame of the Akron was made of duralumin, an alloy of aluminum with copper, magnesium, and manganese.

he company minted shields made of duralumin for promotional purposes; some with the Akron facing left and others right. A number of the shields were riveted to another piece to be used as bookmarks. This bookmark weighs 0.185 ounces (5.25g)!

The Akron was destroyed in a storm in 1933 with the loss of 73 crewmen.
