In July 1922 the Interventor, from Mexico City, recommended that the bank listed the notes in its possession so that they could be incinerated within two monthsAGN, SC224 Antiguos Bancos de Emisión, caja 102, libro 283 minutes of Consejo de Administración, Guadalajara, 1 August 1922.

In December 1922, the board in Agusacalientes decided, because the uncertain security situation meant that the notes that it held could be taken at any moment, to incinerate them immediately in the presence of board members, the comisario and some official from the Administración del Timbre. It agreed to nominate the women who would be in charge of listing the notes for incinerationAGN, SC224 Antiguos Bancos de Emisión, caja 102, libro 283 board minutes, Aguascalientes, 11 December 1922.
