Item DescriptionThe Claude C. Ries Chapter of the American First Day Cover Society used to have a rather nerdy mascot named Phil Lattely who followed us around wherever we went. One of those outings was a group excursion to Los Angeles' Chinatown to attend the First Day Ceremony for the 33¢ Year of the Rabbit issue.
Before the ceremony several Ries members gathered for breakfast at one of L.A.'s oldest surviving restaurants - Phillipe's, where legend has it the French Dip Sandwich was first created! Phillipe's was a favorite eatery of The Three Stooges whenever they were filming in the area!
We had a great time at both breakfast and the ceremony . . although we were slightly embarrassed to be seen with Phil, who had dressed up in a rabbit costume, with a Chinese bamboo hat, chop sticks, and stir-fried carrot!
This handcolored FDC is one of only 15 made.
