Another series (25c) which might not have been used.


There were two issue, the first probably dating to autumn 1915, and we know of four values (2c, 5c, 10c and 20c) .

The first issue was, by the Ayuntamiento’s own admission, small. By May 1916 most of it had been destroyed and there were again problems making change so the Junta de Administración Civil took advantage of a visit by José Siurob, the governor and military commander of the state, on 4 May, to ask for authorisation for a new issue. Siurob agreed to a new issue, similar in size to the former and using the same funds that had been deposited to guarantee the earlier issueAHMI, Actas de Ayuntamiento, libro 1.
