(Paraguay) Registered cover from Montevideo (Uruguay) postmarked August 15, 1936 to Hamburg (Germany) with arrival b/s of August 25, neat non invasive oval excision verso (see scan). Even though the weekly 100% air service was inaugurated in January 1936, the shortage of planes prevented from offering a regular weekly service at least for the first few months of that year. Return flights occurred on August 18 and September 8th so this cover, barely missing the August 18th flight, was sent by the old-fashion air-sea service which was still in operation to supplement the full-air service.
