Best regards!

Hi Rudolfo,
 
I am not an expert either, but from what I see, it would be difficult for an expert to tell if this is a legitimate Anotado due to the faintness of the image.  However, I understand that the expert committee of MEPSI is sometimes capable of making a determination with even poor images. All I can say is that it appears to be about the right size.
 
The Follansbee catalog says that 6c Anotados are worth $650 to $675, so that is a pretty good incentive to have this stamp expertized.  If it is real, no one will believe it without a certificate.
 
Best regards,
 
James

Hello friends!
I have this stamp of 6c. 8-70, Mazatlan with Anotado overprint.  It have 2 1/2 x 14 1/2mm.  This stamp is on Government-printed issue or Forgery Postal ?,  it have a mark from "Aguirre - Mexico".  I am not an expert in this matter.    Genuine stamp?, thanks i advance for your comments!.
