#1288 Australian Antarctic Territory 20/03/16

On August 12, 2020 I received this very nice cover from the Australian Antarctic research station on Macquarie Island. It was cancelled on March 16, 2020. A big thank you goes to the postmaster there! The island is part of the state of Tasmania, but the station is managed by the Australian Antarctic Division.

The stamp set was issued on August 20, 2019. It is entitled “Mapping the Australian Antarctic Territory”.

This stunning cover from the Chilean Antarctic Territory was arranged by Wolfgang, thank you very much! It was cancelled at the Base Eduardo Frei on April 18 and arrived on May 29, 2018.

The left stamp is part of the set “Chilean Cartography”, which was issued on November 4, 2015.

The right stamp is part of the set, which commemorates the indigenous Selk’nam people. It was issued on December 29, 2016.
