Item DescriptionThe Claude C. Ries Chapter - a motley crew of Southern California FDC collectors - gathers every Fall at SESCAL, the largest annual stamp show in the area. 2016's theme for the show was 'Star Trek' to celebrate the television show's 50th anniversary.
This special cover was given to Ries members who attended the club's meeting. It bears stamps of two countries - the Canadian coil stamp depicting the U.S.S. Enterprise, and the U.S. stamp showing the Starfleet uniform insignia framing the Enterprise - both of which are canceled with the pictorial SESCAL postmark from the day of the meeting.
The previous day, SESCAL hosted the official First Day of Issue ceremony for the Eastern Tailed-Blue Butterfly stamp, and that stamp is present as well, canceled with the FDoI postmark.
The cachet features caricatures of 4 Ries Chapter members in their Star Trek uniforms, confounded by the presence of a butterfly on the bridge of the Enterprise, nicely tying together the subject matter of the stamps!
