Dia de la Madre - Argentina

This is a maximum card with the "Dia de la Madre" (Mother's Day) stamp from Argentina that was issued on October 17, 1959. The card is the size of a standard size postcard, but it has a blank back and is rather thin cardstock. In Argentina, Mother's Day is the third Sunday in October.

There is part of a poem printed in Spanish on the card. The Google translation didn't make much sense to me, and I couldn't find a better translation. Following are translations of other words on the card.

Dia de Emision
Day of Issue

I am participating in Sunday Stamps at Viridian's Postcard Blog


  1. This stamp has a simple but effective design; it would be equally appropriate for a children's day.

  2. I like the stamp, it has a light feel to it, it contrasts to the postcard.

  3. Lovely stamp.
    Maybe we can make our own translation.
    "Always a mother, always at the end of your rope!
    feeling insane, you love your children so deeply"
    (from what i could make out - ha ha

  4. I like the card and stamp. I don't speak more than a couple of words of Spanish so if Google made no sense, nor will I.

  5. Very nice card and stamp and I like the cancellation with the pram.

  6. i really like that you have not just the stamp, but the whole thing like that. i have a few. perhaps i should post one or two, eventually...
