Item DescriptionThe last Monday of January always used to be celebrated as National Local Post Day - proprietors of Local Posts all over the world would create a local post stamp for their individual services based on a theme chosen by the Local Post Collectors Society.
The Bufflehead Local Post operated out of Van Nuys, CA (and still does, to some extent!) and this cover was prepared for NLPD in 1996 with the omnibus theme of SPACE.
This cover is franked with the 1995 $3 Priority Mail stamp showing the Space Shuttle above the earth. It was cancelled at the Thousand Oaks, CA post office on January 29, 1996.
The 1 1/2¢ BLP stamp depicts a Bufflehead Duck in the foreground watching the nighttime launch of the shuttle from a marsh near Cape Canaveral! This was the second issue of the BLP, and this particular stamp is a rouletted corner margin single.
An informational stuffer is included . . . AND TWO IMPERFORATE PAIRS OF THE GUMMED STAMPS IN UNISSUED COLORS!! (don't tell anyone we took these out of the vault when no one was looking!)
