None of the medio and cuatro reales stamps are known to exist today. A possibly unique copy of the ocho reales has a MEPSI certificate. The un and dos reales stamps are scarce to rare. Only 240 of the dos reales stamps sent were from plate I, in the emerald shade, and none are known to exist.
The Cuautitlan overprint is approximately 16½ by 2 mm. without dots.
It appears that not all stamps from Cuautitlan were overprinted.
On average, the stamps have normal margins for the issue.
Forgeries from Cuautitlan exist. A MEPSI certificate is recommended.
