Guadalupe Hidalgo was directly dependent on the Central Office in Mexico City. They used stamps overprinted MEXICO between dashes. The stamps are only recognizable by their cancel.

Stamps with Guadalupe Hidalgo cancels have been seen, but have not been expertized. It is therefore unknown if any genuine copies exist today.

On average, the stamps have normal margins for the issue.

Forgeries from Guadalupe Hidalgo exist. A MEPSI certificate is recommended.
