Argentina stamps

Flag of Argentina

Argentina is the second-largest country in South America in area, and the third largest in population.  Argentina has a long, tapered shape and occupies most of the southern part of South America. The Andes Mountains stretch along the country's western border, with a bare, windswept plateau called Patagonia, which extends across the south. A grassy plain, called The Pampa, lies near the middle of the country. Most Argentines are of Italian or Spanish ancestry. Indians ‘the original inhabitants’ make up only a small part of the country's population. Argentina's name comes from the Latin word for silver, argentum, because the first Spanish settlers came to Argentina in search of silver and gold during the 1500's. For almost 300 years, Argentina was a Spanish colony. It finally gained its independence in the early 1800's.  Argentina began printing its own stamps in 1858.

Buenos Aires, long the chief port and commercial center of Argentina, was independent from the rest of the country at various times in the 19th century. Since 1862, however, it has formed a province of Argentina, whose stamps have been in use since 1864. A British post office in the city used regular British stamps (canceled "B-32") from 1860 to 1873 (http://www.linns.com).

#C90 Inside #2429: Argentina #90P

Lou wrote:  The ID of Argentina #90 on Argentina #2429 is incorrect. The stamp reproduced is an imprinted stamp on an aerogram from 1963, note only navy and blue, not multicolored like #90. After Argentina invaded the islands, they needed to provide means for their soldiers to keep in contact with their families.  Initially, they used confiscated Falkland Island OHMS envelopes, but later, they provided stocks of old surplus Argentine aerograms. Although these were imprinted with 11, 13 and 18 peso valued stamps; they were supplied free to the soldiers.  Finally, in May, specific airletter sheets with "SERVICIO EXTRAORDINARIO" and a boxed "FRANQUEO PAGADO"(Postage Paid) imprints were made available. Examples of soldier mail from the seventy four day war are very rarely on the philatelic market, as probably most are still held by the families or were discarded, and so are in demand and expensive. 

The 18 Peso imprinted stamp has a special "ISLAS MALVINAS" cancel dated 6 ABR 1982 (only four days after the invasion), and this may be the first day of use of the aerograms.

Early provincial stamps

The first period in the political history of Argentine postage stamps is the so-called Classical one between the first stamps (1856) and the first commemorative ones (1892). The earliest Argentine stamps were issued by the separate provinces of Corrientes (1856-78), Cordoba (1859-62), and Buenos Aires (1858-59). The mere existence of these provincial stamps reflects the reality that Argentina was hardly a single organized country in that period, but rather a loose federation of some very independent provinces.

There is a charming story surrounding the preparation of the Corrientes 1856 stamp: that it was designed and engraved by a bakers delivery boy, Matias Pipet, who had served as an apprentice to a French engraver before arriving in Corrientes. Since no one in the Corrientes provincial government had any experience preparing stamps, the boy was asked to undertake the task, and he simply copied the stamp he knew best, an early French stamp bearing the head of the Roman goddess of agriculture, Ceres.
