U.S. #1104 featured the first World’s Fair to be held after World War II – the Brussels Universal and International Exposition, held in Brussels, Belgium. The stamp displays a view of the U.S. Pavilion. The Fair was also the first during the Cold War era, and there was tension between the U.S. and Soviet Union groups. 
 
The most memorable display of the fair was the Atomium, a giant structure built to resemble the cell of an iron crystal magnified 165 billion times. It was made of nine connected metal spheres. The structure remains open to visitors.
