The regular issue ranged 1869-97 from Mexico City, Guanajuato, San Luis Potosi, Zacatecas, Chihuahua, Culiacan, Guadalajara, Alamos, Hermosillo, Durango and even Oaxaca. Mexico City issued this type 1868-97 and, while this date is common, it is seldom seen in nice condition. The catalog lists the overdate 1876/5 and no normal date. An overassayer, B/M also exists.
