Mexico D.F. was the largest postal district during the Eagle period, as it had been and still is. However, due to the fact that stamps could be delivered when needed, many of the consignments were actually very small, and the stamps therefore sometimes quite rare.
It is generally believed that the small "districts" of Guadalupe Hidalgo, Lerma, Rio Frio, San Angel, Tacubaya, Texcoco and Tlalpam were actually sub-offices of Mexico D.F. Perhaps it was easier to handle them as if they were districts than having to overprint sub-consignment numbers. Stamps from all these offices are scarce to rare. The term scarce may be an understatement in most cases.
