Consignments were delivered directly to this independent post office from Mexico City. The stamps can only be recognized by the cancel. Perhaps half of the stamps with a Tepeji del Rio cancel known today are overprinted MEXICO.

Tepeji del Rio did not overprint their stamps.

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

Forgeries from Tepeji del Rio exist. A MEPSI certificate is recommended.
