Austria's first joint issue with Argentina


This miniature sheet is yet another philatelic first in the Austrian 2010 issue programme, as it is Austria's first joint issue with Argentina. The miniature sheet shows part of a world map in which both countries have been enlarged and highlighted graphically.

The stamps themselves depict the meteorological station of the Austrian-Hungarian Society at the Botanical Garden of Buenos Aires as well as the historical weather station at Vienna Stadtpark (City Park).
