Ixtlahuaca, un real.
This scarce stamp belongs to Doug Stout.
Ixtlahuaca is located in the state of Mexico. It was the 44th largest postal district, based on the number of stamps used, and 44th by total value of all stamps used. The average cost of the stamps used was 1.65 reales. (San Andres) Ixtlahuaca had around 1,500 inhabitants in 1856.
Ixtlahuaca had 1 sub-office: Anguangeo. According to Odfjell, Temascalcingo was also under Ixtlahuaca.

The first consignment contained dos reales stamps presumably in the emerald color. Very few of those stamps are known to exist today.
Ixtlahuaca later (1867) became a sub-office of Toluca.
The Ixtlahuaca overprint is approximately 19 by 2 mm. It is generally clearly struck.
On average, the stamps have normal margins for the issue.
Forgeries of Ixtlahuaca exist. A MEPSI certificate is recommended.
