Can someone identify the two Argentina stamps below. I just cannot find them in my Scott Catalog.
Thanks.

The portrait on the left stamp looks like the same portrait of Eva Peron as on Scott 607, but that's clearly not the same stamp. Maybe Google can help?

re: Argentina Mystery

i believe the first is from the National Savings and Insurance Fund and not a postal stamp.

The second is Cinderella to raise funds to for "The Erection of the Monument to the Shirtless" in the 1950's. Lots of details of it on the web and there appears to be a whole series of these stamps.

Hope that helps

re: Argentina Mystery

The first one is indeed a fiscal. The words along the bottom translate as 'National Postal Savings Bank'.

I think the second on is a postal tax stamp to raise funds for a monument to some revolutionaries. It translate as 'Pro-monument to the shirtless'.

Hope this helps.
