4,020 of the un real stamps sent were from the small plates, only 3,000 were from the large plates. It is possible that the first consignment of dos reales consisted of 1,020 stamps in the emerald shade, while the second consignment contained 1,500 in the olive shade. Though the olive shade is not priced in the first Follansbee catalog (1998) it certainly does exist. Only 2,850 dos reales stamps from plate III were sent.
The Huejutla overprint is approximately 16½ by 2 mm. It's generally nicely struck.
On average, the stamps have normal margins for the issue.
Forgeries from Huejutla exist. A MEPSI certificate is recommended.
