Regarding the Wells Fargo covers of Mexico, the Western Cover Society is devoting a full issue of it's journal Western Express (June 2010, 90+ pages) to the Mexico Wells Fargo operation.  I haven't received my copy of the journal yet, but I imagine it will be informative.  Their website is www.westerncoversociety.org.  If you happen to contact them please mention MEPSI as we will also be placing and add for MEPSI in their journal and accepting an add from them.

Almost all have been found used, but most are in the hands of collectors that have specialized in these Wells Fargo covers.
 
The various denomination were according to rate changes, interior and exterior use, weght of packages and changing of stamp designs. Early ones actually had district imprints on the covers. All Wells Fargo covers are considered prized collectables.
A collector of Dos Reales of the first design. Always having fun.

Hello Bubba
 
Thanks for your explanation. And one more question. Do you know why all this covers have differents face value or/and face value revalued. I don't find any reason for this. In fact I have not seen any of this envelopes used the most are new. Do you know if this envelopes are philatelic or they was really used normally on his time
 
And thanks again.

The reason these sold for so much is that there were two bidders and they were willing to pay the price. This doesn't mean they are worth that, only that these two guys were willing to pay whatever it took to win the lots. The lost started out for $19.99 each. So, it wasn't the seller but the buyers that determined the price.
 
Happens all the time.
 
Are they worth these prices. No, not really, because they can be found for less, but value is in the eyes of the beholder.
