A splendid effort James. Well done mate.
I have printed it out (55 pages) and had it bound and it will be my new key to the 1868 TTs.

Anyone familiar with James' previous article about the Types of the 1872 should treasure this one.  Great images and text, and just a great resource for the collector of the 1868 issue!

Thank you, James!

As a PS, these two articles (the 1868 and 1872 ones) will be eventually added to the compendium of free downloads available to MEPSI members, but not for several weeks...

1868 Thick Figure Transfer Types

Hi Folks,
 
Since I have become interested in Lithographic Transfer Types as a means to establish the authenticity of some of the classic Mexico issues, the contagion has spread to the Mexico 1868 Thick Figure variety.  While trying to learn a bit about the 1868 issue, I have assembled an article on the subject, which can be viewed or downloaded by clicking on this title:
 
Introduction to the Mexico 1868 Full Face Hidalgo Thick Figure Transfer Types
 
The actual link is: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B7QMri6wKqu3UFJQb2NVcEpYV0U
 
If any of the real experts out there should see anything that is not right in this article, please speak up and I will make the appropriate changes.  It is not carved in stone; it is just electrons.
 
Again, I need to acknowledge some kind people whose assistance made this article possible, specifically: Fritz Aebi, Thurston Bland, Jose Fregoso, Tad Mackie and Martin Spufford.  Thank you, gentlemen.
 
 
James
