Your average every day basic 5 Centavo Argentinian stamp question.

What year/provenance is this 5 Centavo Argentinian stamp? What if anything is significant/known about the symbology thereon?

That is an 1899 Liberty Seated issue, in use between 1899 and 1909. Liberty is a big theme in Argentina; the Himno Nacional begins: "Oid mortales el grito sagrado: Libertad, libertad, libertad!"
