This rare first day sheet from Argentina is this month’s prospect. The Salvation Army stamp commemorated the Salvation Army centenary in Argentina, issued 01.12.1990. Very nice and rare presentation sheet. I was able to get an Argentinian friend to buy this for me at an Argentinian auction (mercadolibre.com). I’ve never seen this sheet on Ebay, although I suspect it must have been listed there, as this FD sheet is listed as no. 31.6 in the SA FDC catalogue.
