Some of my markings you may not be familiar with:
MOG = Mint original gum. This is what I may call anything from one that has a good amount of gum to one that is even lightly hinged.
MNG = Mint NO Gum, in other words, one that has been soaked off or never had gum.
MH = Mint Hinged, a category that covers anything from one that has been easily visible hinging to one that still has a hinge attached.
MLH = Mint Light Hinge, a stamp that has very little of the original hinge mark showing. This can be one that obviously has been hinged, but is in no way a hinge noticeable.
MNH = Mint Never Hinged, is a stamp that has no disturbance of the gum, from hinge or otherwise.
Sc = Scott Catalogue
NF = Nicholas Follansbee's catalogue
Y/B = Yag Bash Catalogue of Stampless cancels (pre-1856)
SN = Sello Negro (Black Stamp) covers used when postage stamps were not available (after 1856).
OOD = Out of District (These are cancels used either as cancellation at place of sending or as receiver cancels. Only on cover is there positive proof of use.)
t-(numbers 1-10) = one of the ten relief types found on 1868 issues. t-with number = type - number on any items that needs separation of types.
Tipo = Types of Mexico, the 1868 issues that were printed from the original stones, used in a contemporary postal fraud during 1870-71.
Sz = Schatzkes catalogue number for cancels used from 1856 to 1872 issues.
Sch = Schimmer Catalogue number (state, office#/cancel #) 1874 -1900 issues.
District may be abbreviated, such as DGO = Durango, GDA = Guadalajara, GTO = Guanajuato, MAZ = Mazatlan, MEX DF = Mexico, OAX = Oaxaca, PUE = Puebla, QRO = Queretaro, SLP = San Louis Potosi, VCZ = Veracruz and ZAC = Zacatecas
