Bisected stamps: I have seen two covers bearing bisected Transitorio 10 centavos stamps. However, they are faked (the stamps are genuine). The handstamp cancellations are back-dated to 4 June 1914, and 13 July 1914, respectively. Both have Hermosillo, Sonora and railroad cancels. Mr. Bolos appears on one of the covers as the addressee (it seem to appear often on faked covers according to Nicholas Follansbee's book).
