Scan courtesy of Larry Johnson
Donald Schultz was affiliated with the Nuclear Ships Chapter and probably sponsored this cover. 

We don't know for sure.  We do know that Mr. Beck printed the cachet. 
The same design was used for several events in about 1963.

This cover is for the trip to Europe and the B996 was commissioning.

 


Flag Day cachet similar to Beck 915 with 1976 date.
These covers were printed by Beck for Martin Longseth a collector. 
In 1976, Longseth sent this cover to every ship with a post office (about 184 ships).
