First Day Cover #5

This First Day Cover is really different from all the others. Attached to the envelope is a thick metal foil stamp.

It's probably hard to tell from the scan; but it is gold color on black foil.  There are two satellites in the background, as well as a tower, with what I am presuming is supposed to be some kind of Yagi at the top.  The operator is using an ElectroVoice microphone and this is mentioned at the bottom.

Strange thing is there's only one stamp on the envelope; but from the feel of it, I would guess we're talking more than one ounce as the foil stamp is pretty hefty.  I would think that in reality, the Post Office would require two stamps, minimum.
