#505 French Southern and Antarctic Lands – Île Amsterdam 11/01/01

Thank you, Jean Pierre, for sending this beautiful cover from Martin-de-Viviès on Amsterdam Island! It was cancelled on January 1 and arrived on September 16, 2011!

The left stamp was issued on January 1, 2009, and depicts the mineral pyrite. The right stamp was issued on January 7, 2011, and therefore was cancelled before its issuing date! It depicts the station Martin-de-Viviès.

The cover also has two mission cancels of the 62nd mission to St. Paul and Amsterdam, which are signed by the ornithologist Benjamin Callard and Romain Buenadicha resp. Mr. Callard has a nice blog (in French) about the expedition.
