Some of the stamps I threw out where the 1889/1890 Renta Interior brown Benito ( I think it is) Revenue stamps - there are three versions a 5 10 and 25. all of those are cut in half but it seems there is a perforation straight down the middle. I can find find info on the practice with those stamps?

The smaller piece, called a talón, was supposed to be detached as a sort of receipt. I think talón is still used as the word for check stubs. English would be "counterfoil" or "receipt" or somesuch. In practice, the whole was often left on a document as your collection shows. Wholes are probably what catalogs price by but a half is still collectible. And if they did what was done in other countries, the wrong half could be detached and nobody seemed to care much. The tax was paid with the purchase of revenue stamps and the (cancelled) stamps on the document were the proof tax was paid.

Very nice to see all the different ones, particularly in multiples.

Found this Multicolor Hidalgo (upper right corner) - I am assuming that a brown stamp bled onto the orange Hidalgo revenue? - sure did create a cool effect.

Mrita75, as a budding collector, the second link Don gave above will be interesting. The sulphurization of yellow and orange inks is not uncommon. And Mexico seems to like those colors.

Hi. I have been searching and can't seem to find a lot of detail on this stamp. I believe it's 1857ish? I have seen Chiapas and Veracruz, tried to search by number? But I'm unsure as I can't find this color in online catalogues. Thank you.

Digging into my newer Mexico stamps - Definitives 1960s-1975ish lots of different papers and printing it seems!






Also, I had posted these "new" revenues to the wrong forum so also including them on my MX thread.

Mrita75 you have a wonderful collection. Love seeing your stamps.

51studebaker or littleriverphil: I have a question on the second link, How To Remove Oxidation From Stamps. Where I live there is a lot of chlorine in the tap warm or not, which is what the article recommends. Would it then be advised to use spring or distilled? Does it matter? Thanks

It matters. Lot of chlorine in my city's water as well, I use distilled water.
Unless the stamp is heavily sulfurized, I'd just dip a q-tip in the hydrogen peroxide and wash the surface of the stamp, let it sit wet a few minutes and rinse with room temp distilled water.

Thank you wannahocalugie and littleriverphil

I have yet to mess with my color changelings... I like the q-tip idea.

You're welcome. Q-tip should work well on your Multicolor Hidalgo above.
