The airmail stamp issued by Guatemala in 1946
with two globular maps of the east and west hemisphere have a number
of geographical errors in the drawing of the maps. On the western
hemisphere there is a large island in the Gulf of Mexico and a strange
island in the s\outh Pacific, the shape of North America is distorted
and Hudson's Bay is missing. On the eastern hemisphere Europe appears
as an island separated from Asia, the Mediterranean Sea is missing,
Africa is disconnected from Asia Minor and Australia is almost as
large as Asia.
Although the dates on the stamp might indicate that the
stamp was issued in 1940, it was in fact issued in 1946.
