America's Cup Winner Le Mischief Featured on Postage Stamp

First Day of Issue: January 2, 2013 - French Southern and Antarctic Territories

The French Southern and Antarctic Territories has issued a new postage stamp featuring the sloop Le Mischief.

Nicknamed "The Iron Pot" and skippered by Nathanael Clock, Le Mischief was the winner of the fourth America's Cup race in 1881.

She was designed by Archibald Cary Smith and built of iron by Harlan & Hollingsworth of Wilmington, Delaware in 1879, and was only the second all-metal yacht to be built in the United States.
