Background: The philatelic notice (see below) printed by the Argentinean Postal Authority is interesting, as it shows two major errors:

  1. The full name of the Organization is printed as follows: ORGANIZACIÓN CIVIL INTERNACIONAL, when the exact name is: ORGANIZACIÓN DE AVIACIÓN CIVIL INTERNACIONAL; and
  2. The follwing paragraph reads as follows: El 7 de Diciembre de 1994 se firmó en Chicago el convenio sobre Aviación Civil Internacional. The Chicago Convention on International Civil Aviation was signed on 7 December 1944, and not in 1994.
