This unique and exclusive collectable is our First Day Cover commemorating the centenary of Scott's South Pole expedition personally signed by the great Sir Ranulph Fiennes. It features our miniature sheet, cancelled with the first day of issue, and an illustrated information card with an appreciation of Scott written by Sir Ranulph.

What makes this so collectable is Sir Ranulph's autograph on the front.

The two-stamp miniature sheet is designed around pictures taken on the expedition by Herbert Ponting, courtesy of Scott Polar Research Institute. They offer an intriguing insight into the astounding challenges the expedition faced.
