Expeditions in Greenland II

In spite of his considerable arctic expedition achievements around the turn of the 20th century, the Norwegian Otto Sverdrup, has always been overshadowed by the Dane Knud Rasmussen as well as his famous fellow countrymen Fridtjof Nansen and Roald Amundsen. In many ways it is a pity, because not only did Otto Sverdrup participate in Fridtjof Nansen's expedition and was captain on the ship "Fram" during the expedition to the Arctic Ocean, he also undertook his own research expedition with the ship "Fram" in the Canadian Arctic over a period of four years. Therefore it is now time to celebrate the considerable arctic expedition achievements by Otto Sverdrup. The folder contains one mint sample each of the souvenir sheets from POST Greenland, Canada Post and Posten Norge.
