That is good news :) . I dont know where I got the idea that MINATITLAN cancel was the same size as Otatitlan except with a square end.
 
If both are correctly illustrated We can now forget about it.
Thanks for the dimensions (noted in my Sz). ::)

Hi Spuff and Meximailers,

Otatitlan is larger than Minatitlan. The outer dimension and the size of the letters are correctly drawn in Schatzk├ęs. The easiest way to figure out for a loose stamp is the height of the letters: Minatitlan is 2.5 mm, while Otatitlan is 3.5 mm.

OTATITLAN AND MINATITLAN CANCELS 1790 AND 1791c

i WOULD LIKE TO SEE COMPLETE SCANS OF BOTH THESE CANCELS.
 
 :) I HAVE A NOTE IN MY SZ THAT THE MINATITLAN ILLUSTRATION IS SMALLER THAN THE ACTUAL.
DOES IT REALLY HAVE SQUARE ENDS? ???
 
SZ DOES NOT LIST OTATITLAN USED ON 1868 AND 1872S BUT THE ATTACHED CANCELS LOOK AS THOUGH THEY SHOULD BOTH BE OTATITLAN FROM THEIR SIZE AND NOT MINATITLAN.
WE NEED TO CLEAR THIS UP.
PLEASE POST YOUR SCANS.FRITZ,COLIN AND ANY OTHER COLLECTOR OF BOTH THESE ISSUES,
NO GUESSES PLEASE JUST PROOF ONE WAY OR THE OTHER.
THANKS
