A revenue stamp is not used for postage, just for tax purposes. You might find it listed in www.stampworld.com or just google "Mexico revenue stamps".

Obieblue.

Believe Peter4522 is correct. That is, it is likely the stamp your posted was used in either revenue or fiscal service.

Typically there are revenue or fiscal speciality stamps. However, there are instances where postage stamps can be employed as fiscal stamps as well.

There is a wealth of info available in the SCF archives as well as various speciality philatelic groups such as The Revenue Society (UK).

Also recommend checking with MEPSI.

That was my guess too, but the Forbin image tended to show a Moustache ?
I wasn't game to commit.

thank you to everyone for helping with identifying the stamp as for revenue usage. But I really think its purpose was for postage due because it has overprinting " Mexico D. P. " would it possibly be for "postage due 25 cent" since in Spanish you put the verb before the noun?

This is exactly why our job/interest is so difficult here.
Trying to give advice, with hidden details.
Poor scan with lack of advice telling us there is an overprint.

I would urge all collectors to try, and take time to give us all the details of the item before posting.

Incorrect assumption.
Supply an example of another Postage Due with this opt
Explain the revenue script cancellation.
