Just received the GJ Argentina Specialized Catalog

Post by DJCMH »

and it is simply GORGEOUS.

Hardcover, 500 large (11 inch x 14 inch approx) full color pages full of detail, also shows covers and full selection of the Departmento Officials.

All for about US$60, including registered shipping, from Argentina to the USA.

Anyone interested in Argentine philately should consider acquiring one. It is almost a coffee-table book more than a catalog, but has tons of information on varieties in watermark, paper, shades etc.

Please give us more detail what wealth of knowledge is hidden inside that catalogue. It is interesting to know how and where it is possible to get more information regarding stamps.

I suppose it is the same I got last year (=2013)- but for Europe the price is nearly 80 US$ due to higher transportation costs from Argentina.
The catalog is really well done, but too heavy to handle during hours.
The images are all in colour and it ends with 2006. The following years can be downloaded from G. Jalil's homepage. The next updated printed edition is planned for 2015.
Good luck then in 2015!

Heinz - my edition goes to the end of 2008. Have not had a chance to download the supplementary years, though I am not so interested in the most recent issues in any case.

I'm looking for specialised information on the Argentina set issued on 17 August 1950 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the death of General St Martin.

Might someone be so kind as to post the relevant specialist page?
