Cover: Nativity Scene from USA

This cover carries one of the USPS Holiday stamps commemorating Christmas.

USA 2016 Nativity

Country: United States of America
Date of Issue:
Nativity – 3rd November 2016
Eastern Tailed-Blue Butterfly – 24th September 2016

Stamp Details

  • LeftEastern Tailed-Blue Butterfly, Non-Machinable Surcharge (applied when a letter or parcel cannot be processed automatically)
  • Right: Nativity, one of three Christmas designs in the USPS Holiday stamp series

The cover is postmarked Des MoinesIowa. It contained my ebay purchase of the USPS 2016 Star Trek stamps, which is probably why the surcharge was applied: the stamps were protected with a piece of card which meant the cover was not flexible enough for the automatic processing machine.
