Cover - Guatemala

I got this second cover, a registered cover from Guatemala too recently. This one is also an FDC. However it was not sent on the date of issue. There are two dates on the cover. The date of issue of the cover, which is 17th Dec. 2012 and the date of sending which is 27th Aug. 2013.

I find this cover quite fascinating. The stamp on the cover front is from the 2012 release of nine stamps by Guatemala Post marking the end of the calendar known as Baktun 13 and the start of a new era. Its another story how the media interpreted and invented the end of the world based on this calendar.
