Stamp Issue with missing "TIEV"
« Reply #1 on: December 01, 2015, 05:02:36 PM »
I don't collect the postage stamps of Mexico, so I'm posting this in the event it might be interesting to stamp collectors.
I recently purchased an item from a dealer in Mexico City and the envelope with my purchase had a block of 9 of a recent Mexico $2 Peso issue.
A note was included which mentioned that the center stamp in the block was missing the "TIEV" imprint at the bottom of the stamp.  I have no idea if this was intentional, accidental, or whether this is present on every pane or sheet of stamps, or just on some.
I've attached a scan of the stamp, and a crop from the bottom section of a strip of 3 with the center stamp missing the "TIEV".
If there is a collector of current issues with additional information about this issue and the variety, please post and add the information. 
I'm curious.
Thanks
