Stamps stick to Santa’s beard in Penpex show cancel
Postmark Pursuit by Molly Goad
The 48th annual Penpex stamp show was held Dec. 4-5, 2021, in Redwood City, Calif., and the two cancels for the event are available for an additional 30 days.
The show is presented by the Sequoia Stamp Club, a group that has been around for more than 73 years and is one of the largest and most active local stamp clubs in California’s Bay Area.
The Dec. 4 pictorial postmark, titled “Philatelic Snow Storm,” features Santa with a layer of stamps sticking to his beard and hat. The Dec. 5 cancel is titled “Sunrise-Sunset Over Penpex” and shows the sun shining down on trees at sunrise and at sunset.
To obtain the postmarks, address your request to:
PENPEX Station, Postmaster, Box 7838, San Francisco, CA 94120-7838.
— Dec. 4 (“Philatelic Snow Storm.”)
— Dec. 5 (“Sunrise-Sunset Over Penpex.”)
