United States of America - California
In my World envelope collection I do not just want to have envelopes from stamp-issuing countries and territories, but also from other regions. This includes the 50 states of the United States of America. This envelope comes from the state of California, lying in the southwestern region of the United States. It was the 31st state, admitted in 1850.
The stamps were affixed by me and come from the Flags of our nations and Greetings series, a stamp commemorating the 150th anniversary of statehood and the California stamp from the 1981 State Bird & Flower series. I sent the envelope to the post office in the capital Sacramento to be postmarked. The envelope arrived back with three beautiful postmarks from USPS Royal Oaks post office. It is always a surprise what the name in the postmark will be.
