#592 French Southern and Antarctic Lands – Adélie Land 11/01/01

Thank you, Jean Pierre, for sending this amazing FDC from the French Southern and Antarctic Lands (TAAF). The cover was cancelled in Dumont d’Urville Station (Adélie Land) on January 1, 2011 and arrived on January 27, 2012!

The left stamp set was issued on January 1, 2011. It commemorates the mineral Zircon. The stamp on the right was issued on January 1 too. It depicts the Concordia Station and the star constellation Southern Cross (Crux).

The cover was posted in the course of the 61th French Antarctic Expedition 2011, which was confirmed by the cancellation on the left border.

In combination with the red forwarding sticker of Austrian post this is truly an unique cover!
