Resellos on sábanas – Oaxaca

On 27 August 1915 governor José Inés Dávila decreed, inter alia, that certain issues already circulating in the state should be legal circulation, provided they were revalidated in accordance with his decree. These were to be of forced circulation but only for denominations up to twenty pesos: denominations about twenty pesos would only be of forced circulation in transactions above five hundred pesos. Holders were given fifteen working days to have their notes revalidated in the Jefatura de Hacienda or Tesorería General in the state capital and in the Recaudaciones de Contribuciones in the districts. After that time notes without revalidation would cease to have legal circulation in the state.

The designated issues included the sábanas.

It is suggested that the thirty seals used were of a red rose design.
