No stamps from Tacubaya are known to exist today - so much for a complete collection ;-)

Tacubaya reported directly to the Central Office in Mexico City.

It is unknown if Tacubaya overprinted their stamps - Odfjell states they didn't.

Forgeries from Tacubaya exist. A MEPSI certificate is recommended.
