Argentina

The Argentine Republic is a federal republic in South America.  Buenos Aires is its capital.  The country is bordered to the west by Chile, to the north by Bolivia and Paraguay, to the northeast by Brazil and to the east by Uruguay and the South Atlantic Ocean.  To the south lies the Drake Passage.  Since the end of the civil war in 1861, Argentina has enjoyed peace and great prosperity to the degree that by the early 20th century, it was regarded as the 7th wealthiest developed nation in the world.  This changed after 1930 when political instability and economic underdevelopment pushed it back, although it still remained one of the wealthier nations of the developed world.

Argentine postage stamps were first issued in 1856.   They were actually issued by the various provinces not by the country as a whole.  From 1856 – 1876 Corrientes, a province in the north east of Argentina issued postage stamps.  These stamps have long been prized by collectors.  After 1880 stamps of Argentina were used.

For much of the 20th century, Argentine stamps did not change much from their conservative, generally “Art Nouveau” style. In 1946 the British owned postal and telegraph services were nationalised by President Juan Peron.  The red mail drop boxes are still evident in Buenos Aires today.

After 1983 when Argentina returned to democracy, the stamps became more varied in style and theme.  Many stamps were issued to celebrate the return to democracy.  Argentina also issued postal stationery including envelopes, newspaper wrappers and postcards in the 19th century.  Many types of revenue stamps have also been issued.
