Sub-consignments from Oajaca are very difficult to understand. The records are incomplete, and an attempt at explaining what we see on the stamps is speculative at best.

Stamps with sub-numbers are scarce to rare, and some are not known to exist at all. Corbett reported that only 35 stamps are known from the first 16 sub-consignments in 1866.
