Many of the 4R and 8R stamps were sent to sub-offices. They were often bi- or quadri-sected to meet the needs for lower denomination stamps. Corbett estimated that only 350 ½R stamps were sent to sub-offices in the entire Eagle period, and on just four invoice to four different sub-office (Papasquiaro, Gavilanes, Cerro Gordo and Penon Blanco).

Sub-consignment overprinting began in 1865 with sub 19 1865 on third period stamps from invoice 233 1864.
