I think most have seen this type of Mexican stamps, but who can tell me what they actually are? As far as I know, they are not listed in either Scott or Michel.

I believe them to be Christmas Seals (TB stamps).

Thank you both.
I guessed it had to do with Tuberculosis because of the Cross of Lorraine.

re: Mexico cinderella / tax / revenue or what?

Do any members of Stamporama collect TB topicals? I've considered starting a collection. My own history was greatly affected by TB: my paternal grandmother was diagnosed with TB in the 1930s, and languished in and out of hospital until 1945, with everyone doubting that she could survive. Then a new friend, the mother of a friend my uncle had met in the U.S. Army Air Forces, suggested that she move to Arizona where the climate might affect a cure. She and my grandfather did move, but stopped in Hurley, New Mexico to visit another friend. My grandfather learned that he could get work in the copper smelter there, so they stayed. The climate apparently cured her, or perhaps it was the sulphur dioxide spewing from the Hurley smokestack, at the time the tallest in the world, that did the job. In any event, she lived until she was 95, and died not from TB but from terminal irritability.

That area of New Mexico had several TB sanataria as well as an Army/VA hospital at Fort Bayard that specialized in the treatment of TB. In fact, I have a distant cousin who was a TB patient at Fort Bayard, and died there; he apparently contracted TB in the Philippine War, America's first asymmetrical war, foreshadowing the Vietnam War.

Anhyhow, I'd be interesting in chatting with any "TB collectors".
