San Martin Texmelucan was a sub-office under Puebla. It is possible that this "district" was not a district at all, but simply received a Direct Emergency Shipment, or was under the direct control of the General Post Office in Mexico City for a short period of time.

Only one copy of an un real without overprint and with a San Martin Texmelucan cancel is known to exist today. No covers have been found with a stamp having a Puebla overprint and cancelled in San Martin Texmelucan around March 1863.

It is unknown if San Martin Texmelucan overprinted the stamps it received, but none have been found to date.

On average, the stamps have normal margins for the issue.

Forgeries from San Martin Texmelucan exist. A MEPSI certificate is recommended.
