San Angel was a small southern suburb of Mexico City. No documents have been found proving there was ever a post office in the area. However, stamps were sent, but none were used in San Angel as far as we know. It is unknown if a name overprinting device existed, since the only known copies have the Mexico overprint. It is possible that San Angel didn't even have a cencelling device.

All the stamps sent were returned and re-issued to Mexico on invoice 86-1866, but obviously still had the original invoice numbers on them. Why the stamps lingered in San Angel for two years - if in fact they were ever there - is a mystery to most. All we have is speculation.

A few are known used in Mexico, but at least four unused copies of the dos reales have been found. The only known copy of a medio real stamp is unused.

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.
