U.s. 1094 Uss Nautilus 1st Atomic Submarine North Pole Cover, 1958 For Sale
ITEM DESCRIPTION: U.S. 1094 tied by "Brooklyn, NY Naval Base, August 25, 1958" postmark to first submerged voyage from the Pacific to the Atlantic via the North Pole, Portland, England to the United States via the great circle route, signed by W. R. Anderson, Commanding Officer, with :Moundsville, WV, August 27, 1958" receiving postmark on its reverse. USS Nautilus (SSN-571) is the world's first operational nuclear-powered submarine. She was the first vessel to complete a submerged transit to the North Pole on 3 August 1958. Nautilus was authorized in 1951 and launched in 1954. Because her nuclear propulsion allowed her to remain submerged far longer than diesel-electric submarines, she broke many records in her first years of operation. Nautilus was decommissioned in 1980 and designated a National Historic Landmark in 1982. SCARCE
