A rare stamp with a rare cancel.

Sultepec was a head office from 1856 until after 1857. It is known to be under Toluca in January 1861.
The district of Sultepec should not be confused with the sub-office of Soltepec in the Apam district.
The Sultepec overprint is approximately 15½ by 2 mm. It's generally nicely struck.
On average, the stamps have normal margins for the issue.
Forgeries from Sultepec exist. A MEPSI certificate is recommended.
