Maisie,

So I went over Greenland for nothing... <_<

Look in grid square N1 on Plate 60.


Which map would that be? I have the 7th edition and Plate 60, Grid N1 is the Pacific, east of South America, without any land features. Looks like we're talking about different editions of the atlas and the map numbering must have changed in the meantime.

Doh!
You're right, I have an old edition. The smiley is on the Scandinavia plate. Go to 62N 6E, then look beside the "k" in Davik.
THIS time I'm sure you'll find it!

Re. the Greenland one, it's funny how your mind will recognize patterns, especially if you expect them to be there :blink:
