Oaxaca Tlaxiaco

Tlaxiaco is a town located in the south of the Mixteca region where José Inés Dávila set up his government when driven from the state capital.

On 26 June 1916 Dávila issued 10,000 50c cartones, authorized by a decree of 24 June[text needed].

This is the last of the Dávila government issues. Typeset and printed in black on light weight tan card, it was finished with handstamped signatures on the face and a brown-red serial number. There is usually a violet treasury seal on the back (inverted, lower left comer). Early notes seem to lack the treasury seal. All are Series F, as a continuation from previous issues.
