First Day Cover with printed cachet and stamp. Cachet depicts the Atomium monument from the 1958 World's Fair Exhibition in Brussel's Belgium. Designed by engineer André Waterkeyn (1917-2005) and architects André (1914-1988) and Jean Polak (1920-2012), the Atomium totaled more than 2,400 tons and represented a magnetized iron crystal cell. Intending to serve as a symbol for peace among nations even with great strides in atomic energy, the Atomium became a fixture of the 1958 Universal and International Exhibition. The stamp depicts an aerial view of the United States Pavillion of the exhibition.
