Product information "100th anniversary of the arrival of the research vessel & quot; Gauss & quot; - Postage stamp mint, catalog"

On the 100th anniversary of the arrival of the German research vessel & ldquo; Gauss & ldquo; as part of the first German Arctic expedition, the postal administration of the French territories of the Antarctic issued this fine special stamp - printed in the elaborate intaglio printing with a face value of 2.44 €.


In 1899 the Reichstag in Berlin approved over 1 million Mark for building a special Antarctic research vessel.
The result was the Gauss: the three-masted glider with an additional drive of a 3-cylinder expansion steam engine, and that was a special feature at the time - an electric lighting and & ndash; which is of course particularly important for the Antarctic expedition - a steam heater.
The ship itself was 46 meters long.
