Perhaps more often than not, these stamps are found without overprint. They are therefore only recognizable by their cancel. The best indication would of course be if they are found on cover sent from Tulancingo.
The Tulancingo overprint is approximately 19 by 1¾ mm, without dots. It's generally nicely struck.
On average, the stamps have normal margins for the issue.
Forgeries from Tulancingo exist. A MEPSI certificate is recommended.
