Twenty thousand $10 notes (G5-Z5, 110001-130000) were ordered on 18 December 1912 and shipped complete on 5 April 1913, by Wells Fargo Express, to the Banco Central Mexicano in Mexico City. On 9 May Wells Fargo advised the ABNC that they were holding the shipment on hand at Laredo and that there were standing against it accrued charges of $73. 05. The ABNC instructed them to hold it subject to our further orders and at the same time wrote to the Banco Minero in Chihuahua, asking what they should do. They had reply and wrote again on 6 August. On 11 August they sent a copy of our last letter to Charles T. Blackmore, their Agent in Mexico City, to see if he could send it through to the bank at Chihuahua. As of 15 September the shipment was still being held at LaredoABNC letter 15 September 1913.

On 4 June 1915 Ismael M. Ruiz wrote from Nogales that the Banco Occidental had $250 in unsigned $10 Banco Minero notes, which they wanted changed.

Five of these unsigned N25 notes (160347CNBanxico #24419,160652CNBanxico #24420, 160697CNBanxico #24421,160698CNBanxico #24418 and161182CNBanxico #24417) appear in the Banco de México collection: others are known signed and dated so these must have slipped through unchecked.
