Hi Rod,

Here's what I can find from a quick look in the Higgins & Gage catalogue.

The wrapper fragment is from H&G E25 issued in 1899.

The Liberty Head envelope cut-out is probably from H&G B22 issued in 1902/3. I say "probably" as the catalogue descriptions of the designs on the reverse are not clear to me.

The San Martin envelope cut-out is probably from H&G B25a issued in 1907/9 or from H&G B28 issued in 1911. H&G B25 is also possible.

I see H&G list a group of official postal cards from 1934 which have the designs of the small San Martin stamps of the time with either 4c or 10c
but overprinted with the initials of a government department.

I've never seen these initials on postal stationery but these cards sound fun and they would fit in nicely with your departmental stamps.

Hello Nigel,
Thanks for your time and efforts, I'll pencil in the H&G information.

Hello Rod,

i have these 2 examples of the wrapper you have shown. They do have Impresos on them as you can see. and I have two values, 1 and 2 centavo(s). The 1 centavo is normal blue and the 2 centavos is dark blue. Unfortunatly the cancelations are difficult to read or not present. the 1 centavo has a remark in pencil: H6/E24 and the 2 centavos E25. The numbers mean nothing to me, but maybe they can help. Kind reards, Johan. By the way I am really learning a lot about Argentine stamps in this post.

Hi Johan,
thanks a bunch for those.

Going by the "IMPRESOS" yours must be 1901 onwards.

Nigel has it at 1899, but I must question him about that.

It's getting late here, I'll re-visit tomorrow morning after a coffee.

Hi Johan and Rod,

Unlike food additives these E numbers are Higgins & Gage catalogue numbers for wrappers.

Rather like Scott does with stamps, H&G give their catalogue numbers standard prefixes for different types of postal stationery.

The pencil markings here will be "HG" rather than "H6".

I agree these two wrappers are H&G E24 and E25.

E25 is the H&G number I gave above for the piece of Rod's wrapper so that's a good sign!

According to the catalogue these two were both issued in 1899 and are shown in the catalogue as here as having the words FAJA POSTAL and IMPRESOS which I would translate as "Postal Wrapper" and "Printed Matter".

Rod, I don't understand your point about the presence of "IMPRESOS".

As far as I can see in the catalogue many Argentine wrappers used the word including one issued back in 1880.

The 1899 wrappers were still the current ones in 1901 and were probably still valid after newer issues came out in 1902.
