This block of four stamps was issued to honor a number of men who played key roles in discovering and unlocking the North Pole. 
 
Elisha Kent Kane sailed his tiny ship Advance northward – perhaps close enough to see the North Pole itself.  His stamp shows his ship sinking, after being damaged by ice floes. 
 
Adolphus Greely endured devastating hardships to reach a point that was the closest any explorer got to the North Pole for 21 years.  His stamp pictures him and two helpers pulling a sled across the ice. 
 
Robert E. Peary and Matthew Henson’s expeditionary assaults ended in triumph at the North Pole in 1909.  Their stamp illustrates the two men trekking northward, using a dog sled. 
 
And Vilhjalmur Stefansson explored the Beaufort Sea – the last great unknown Arctic area.  His stamp shows him carrying a harpoon and dragging his seal catch across the ice.
