Bonds for unpaid salaries
On a couple of occasions, Zacatecas, like other states, lacked the resources to pay its public employees. It therefore issued them with bonds that could be used in future for the payment of taxes or other demands.
As such these are not paper currency, but are included here as they appear in various catalogues.
On 9 December 1918 governor Luis R. Reyes authorised an issue of bonds to cover salaries outstanding from 1917 and 1918Periódico Oficial, Año V, Tomo V, Núm. 47, 11 December 1918. These bore an image of the equestrian statue of General Jesús González Otega.
