The 1930 and 1931 overprints were the final straw in Mexican stamp overprint manipulation. They were prepared for a dealer who tightly controlled distribution. In fact, he had almost all of the 4c and $1 '1931' overprint in his stock, and only overprinted the 2c value [1931] several years later (listing removed from most catalogs). According to one source only about 150 sets of the '1931' Habilitado overprints were even distributed to postal outlets. Remaining stocks were finally destroyed after collectors outcry.
Query: Does anyone have knowledge of the number of stamps per pane for both the centavos and peso values?Possibilities for the 1 peso value are 25, 30, or 50 stamps per pane (which were all known as issued for different stamps during this period). Centavos values could be either 50 or 100 stamps/pane.Any help would be appreciated!

There were two "HABILITADO" overprints on this issue, 1930 and 1931.  Did the wording of the authorization for the original issue include a specific date of withdrawl that would then call for the habilitado overprint?
