Title: Maximilian engraved 18-1866, Date....
Post by: Rodolfo Torres Vazquez on January 18, 2019, 12:41:34 AM

Hello friends!


I have a Maximilian stamp with date May 25, 1867, this can be consider as late use?, as comment: Querétaro fell on May 15, 1867, and Maximilian was taken prisoner; thanks!


Regards!
Rodolfo

Probably good. Some (including Escandon and other Regency supporters) used Maximilian stamps as late as July 1867. Follansbee sold a Soyaniquilpan cover dated late July, 1867. The Post Office reopened June 22, 1867 so a May 1867 Maxi use is quite easily explained.

Hello Mark!


Thanks for your replies, I will add in my notes them!. I can assume that is a late use because was after of the Imperial fall?.    I have a small doubt, you can see the scan?, because I added it in my first post, please let me know, I can add again.


Regards!
