Hi

Have this item not found in Scott. Does anyone have a catalog number? Any and all assistance appreciated.

Gettinold, these stationery items are not listed in any Scott. I suggest if you'd like to know more about this, Google Mexico stationery images and see if you can find it that way.

Thank you for the suggestion. I was able to find an example on Postalhistory.com. No catalog number referenced on the site. They had multiple examples of the surcharged card dating back as early as 1910. This image is from Postalhistory.com:




I wish the person who turned the card into a cut square hadn't done so. The text on the reverse is in Chinese. The original card may have had additional postmarks if mailed from China.

Your cut square is very likely not from a paid reply card; it does not have perforations along the top. There is no reason to trim them off. Therefore it is very likely not mailed from China. If you think there is nobody in Mexico that can speak/read/write Chinese, you are mistaken.
