Cover from Argentina no. 2
A spectacular cover received a few months ago from Óscar, San Luis, Argentina! The six stamps and two black and white complements are dedicated to sheep, presenting six various ovine races typical for the Argentinian production. They are: Merino, Romney Marsh, Corriedale, Hampshire Down, Lincoln and Frisian. The minisheet was issued on 22 August 2009 in 80,000 copies, and it was accompanied by a first day cover which Óscar sent me as well, complete with the corresponding postmarks. The letter itself was sent on 14 December 2009 from San Luis. The rest of the postage for the 23 gram registered letter is marked by a 23-pesos sticker.
