The value 15 c was overprinted with 'GOBIERNO $ CONSTITUCIONALISTA' in 1914 (RR).

Some squarish 'GCM' overprints exist on these stamps (on the 1 c lilac, 2 c green, 3 c brown, 5 c orange, 15 c blue and orange and 20 c red and blue; on the 5 c orange and the 15 c blue and orange there also exists a slightly different type of overprint) made in 1915. All these overprints are very rare on these stamps:


(Squarish 'GCM' overprint on 5 c and 20 c)

The values 5 c orange and 15 c also exist with 'G.P.DE M.' overprint in a fancy pattern. This overprint was applied in 1916. This same overprint was also applied together with the squarish 'GCM' and small fancy 'GCM' overprint on the 5 c value. All these stamps are rare (RR).

These stamps exist with overprint 'OFICIAL' to be used as official stamps, example:

Two different kinds of the 'OFFICIAL' overprint exist.

I have seen the 50 c and 5 P values with a squarish 'GCM' overprint (this could be bogus):

Stamps with overprint 'E.G de M' are of private origin. Other 'dubious' overprints exist, such as: 'GBNO CONST', 'Gob. Cons.', also 'GOBIERNO CONSTITUCIONALISTA' different from the ones listed below (some with extra letters added).

All the above stamps exist with 'OFICIAL' overprint. Also with 'OFICIAL' and 'G.P.DE M' overprint at the same time.


('OFICIAL' overprint on 5 P)

These stamps exist overprinted with large 'GCM' in fancy letters (=Gobierno Constitucionalista Mexicana' in red, violet, green or black. Three types of this overprint seem to exist:
