Genuinely used stamps from invoice 50-1866 are very rare. The only known items are: two covers and four stamps overprinted Parral (shown here) and one stamp overprinted Chihuahua, all cancelled in Parral.

Beware of stamps without name cancelled with an indeterminable cancel - they are most likely forgeries. A MEPSI certificate is recommended on all cancelled Chihuahua Eagles.

Corbett and Follansbee note that mint "sheets" exist. A mint block of 90 may also exist. Unused blocks, strips and pairs are rather plentiful.
