Mexico.

Hiscocks made no mention of Mexico because, as far as I know, they did not issue Telegraph stamps.
However the following Telegram cards are specifically for telegraphic usage, so I am listing them.

The above 2 covers were bought in December 2006 for $115 each and sold together a year later for $150 the pair !

 

I am not sure of the scale for the items above, probably varied. The stamps should give an idea.
This one is at 150dpi.
