 Argentina 445

     Chile objected to this map stamp because it did not show Chile's border with Argentina accurately. Argentina 446 was issued in response to Chile's objection. The identification of the Falkland Islands as part of Argentina is propaganda, not an error, although it was disputed by Great Britain. The border between Bolivia and Paraguay is the pre-1939 border. In 1939 Paraguay's northwestern border was extended to include the Chaco. Since the stamp was issued in 1936, that  omission is not an error
