China: 2012 - Zhong Shang Station
2012 (Dec 20) airmail cover from Zhong Shang Station, Polar Research Institute of China to Tasmania, Australia with handstamp 'The 29th Chinese National Antarctic Expedition'.
A 'members only' souvenir cover produced by ANTARCTICA SERVICES.
ANTARCTICA SERVICES and the associated ANTARCTIC PROTECTION SOCIETY were founded by Klaus Arne Pedersen at the World Expo in Brisbane, Australia, on August 8, 1988. The goal was to provide an easy way for the members of the APS to receive optimal covers whose individual handling would be both very difficult and costly.
The numbers on the back relate to chronological issue, not how many were produced.
Fine condition and attractive.
