A perforated, gummed (hinged) poster stamp, commemorating the 1954 Antarctic Expedition. Printed in violet on unwatermarked paper, and perf. 11.2. 

Although the country name is not on the stamp, and there is no denomination, research indicates that the 1954 expedition was conducted by Australians to build Mawson Station, located on the northeast part of the continent. Therefore, it is reasonable to suppose that it is of Australian origin. 

An interesting collateral item. Est. $5
