Used copies are scarce to rare. Mint remainders are somewhat plentiful, having survived to a large extent though they were not returned.

½R stamps are only known mint - except that lot #1173 in the Quast sale (Robson Lowe 1960) was a copy cancelled in Tlalpujahua!? It is unknown if this stamp has been expertized.

Leo Corbett found the following quantities to have survived:

Follansbee recorded a mint block of 64 ½R and one of 29 1R. A block of nine unused 1R was in the La Filatelia Mexicana auction March 1, 2003 as lot #432.

There was a block of 24 mint ½R in the Carlos Fernandez T. sale (1998). I wonder if the block of 64 mentioned above is a mistake for this block?
