Issues of 1924-1927

The 1 Peso on 1.25 Pesos pale blue provisional.

This provisional was first reported in the philatelic press in July 1924. It was stated that 100,000 were printed but 18,000 of these were burned due to poor overprints. Thus the delivered total was 84,000. I have recorded no essay, proofs, or varieties of this issue.
