8 Covers sent from different countries to the Falkland Islands, dispatched soon after the end of the Argentina-Great Britain war over the sovereignty of the islands. As it was usual BEFORE the war, the covers were sent by the postal administrations to Buenos Aires to be redirected to the islands, where they were withheld. Most of the covers have phosphorescent marks of the sorting machines of the Argentine post, and one cover bears the inscriptions "Port Stanley" and "Falkland Islands" crossed out, with the Spanish equivalent of "Puerto Argentino" and "Islas Malvinas Argentina" written on the side. Very interesting lot that shows the difficulties in postal communication that arose after the war, until the British government established new routes (no longer via Buenos Aires) to the islands. Very fine quality, lot of great interest for the especialist!

Cover sent from USA on 16/JUN/1982 (2 days after the end of the Argentina-Great Britain war over the sovereignty of the Falkland Islands) to the "Postmaster, Port Stanley, Falkland Islands", and as it was usual BEFORE the conflict, the cover was sent by the US postal service to Buenos Aires to be redirected to its final destination. Upon arrival in Argentina (it shows the typical phosphorescent marks of the automatic sorting machines used at the time), a mail clerk crossed out the English names and wrote "Puerto Argentino - Islas Malvinas - Argentina", he also crossed out the American postage and postmark (possibly expressing his anti-American feeling given the help of that country to Great Britain during the war), and finally the cover received a very rare rectangular marking in black with a long inscription: "BUENOS AIRES (C.P.I.) ARGENTINA – RETURNED TO DISPATCHER – Postal exchanges with the Falklands Islands, South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands are interrupted due to the illegitimate occupation by Great Britain of these islands, which are part of the Republic of Argentina and belong to its sovereignty." Extremely rare example of the consequences to the postal communications with the islands that arose after the war, until new routes were established away from Argentina. A rare piece for a great collection!
