No used copies of the ocho reales stamps are known to exist today. A few splits of the 4R and 8R stamps are known.
The Hermosillo overprint is approximately 21 by 2 mm, with leading and trailing dots, but they do not always show well. It's generally nicely struck.
On average, the stamps have normal margins for the issue.
Forgeries from Hermosillo exist. A MEPSI certificate is recommended.
