Mrita75, very sorry for your problems. My bad. I sent you an email, cleaned up the topic a bit, and believe it is fixed, please try again.

EDIT: I just noticed the fine print on the bottom. Still not sure why they would have done this one different than the rest. :)

Hoping someone can help me with this revenue that I just acquired to add to my collection. nothing fancy - Mexico DO#43. As I was looking at it, I noticed that the 25c on the top left corner looks flipped (not sure the formal term:)? I went back to my catalogue thinking well maybe this is normal - but none of the others from the set have this presentation. Has anyone seen this before? Maybe this 25 centavos is distinct as it is not shown as an example in the Robert's catalogue. If not normal, how would something like this have happened? I do not think this stamp is fake - I mean it is only worth a couple of cents.

To me, it looks like the 25 centavos stamp shown above is legit. I suggest sending it to Mike Roberts, at MEPSI. He can ask other MEPSI members about this stamp. I think is a very nice stamp.

Mrita, the footnote in the catalog image you posted states "On Do 43, the left 25 is a mirror image of the normal 25 at the right." So it is completely normal. Since the "2" and the "5" are mirror images of each other they could have been confused when producing the die. Reminds me of the 5 cent red Washington-Franklin error.

Hi MexMex and Germania. As soon as I posted, I saw the tiny print on the bottom of the catalogue page. Really interesting that the 25 centavos is distinct. Yes agree these Documentos revenues are very nice. These can be challenging to find in nice shape.

Also, unlike most regular issues, it seems, (subjective at this point), that most Mex revenues are priced much higher than the Robert's catalogue CV. Haven't figured out why that is. The hunt continues. :)

Nothing fancy but did a trial page on quadrilled paper. Made a nice cover page too. Might be too plain but it's ok.

Ok. a kind soul did an example page from software to show me what is possible. Here are stamps remounted on a much nicer format. I hope to be able to use this format moving forward.
