Tula, un real.
This beauty belongs to Doug Stout.
Tula is located in the state of Hidalgo. It was the 35th largest postal district, based on the number of stamps used, and 36th by total value of all stamps used. The average cost of the stamps used was 1.43 reales. Tula (de Allende) had about 1,300 inhabitants around 1880.
Tula had 7 sub-offices: Encarnacion, Huichapan, Ixmiquilpan, Jacala, San Juan del Rio, Tecozautla and Zimapan.

The Tula overprint is approximately 9 by 2 mm. It's generally poorly struck.
On average, the stamps have normal margins for the issue.
Forgeries from Tula exist. A MEPSI certificate is recommended.
