I have a group of four postcards from the IGY/Operation Deep Freeze, and three of them have this cinderella on them. I can't find anything online. Has anyone seen it before?

I am not sure who issued this cinderella, but it appears to honor the first American expeditions to Antarctica.

In 1820, Nathaniel Palmer reported a landfall on the coast of Antarctica, which he called Palmer Land.

In January 1840, Charles Wilkes was commander of the United States Exploring Expedition. He charted 1500 miles of the east Antarctic coastline in his flagship U.S.S. Vincennes, thereby proving the existence of Antarctica as a land continent.

Just as a side note the US did issue a stamp for the International Geophysical Year 1957-58

If I'm right, there is bound to be something in one of the Society's publications in the years leading up to IGY.

Here is their website.

It looks all messed up to me, too. I'm using Chrome browser, though I'm not sure if that has anything to do with it.
