La Sociedad Mutualista de Occidente

Apart from the United Sugar Companies issue no other private issues are known. However, the catalogues do include this constancia de pago from the Sociedad Mutualista de Occidente, dated 1 October 1915.

Sociedad Mutualista

The Sociedad Mutualista was founded in 1904 by Manual Bonilla to procure and promote benefits for its members. Bonilla was an activist against the Díaz regime. In January 1910 he established the Sinaloan Club Antireelectionista and then served as Madero’s Ministro de Comunicaciones and then Secretario de Fomento.

This constancia does not have a denomination (at least on this side) so more information is needed before we can decide whether and how it ould be classified as paper currency.
