In January 1916 the Carrancistas calculated that Villa had issued $274,173,096 in different denominations, including $14,476,000 that the last Villista governor, General Fidel Avila, had taken to Ciudad Juárez that lacked seals and control letters (resellos y contraseñas). In Ciudad Juárez there may have been $12,475,000 in strongboxes that Avila was unable to get into the United States in timeAGN, Fondo Gobernación Periodo Revolucionario, caja 61, exp. 24, report 10 January 1916.
Some of the remainders were used as movie money or curios. In May 1935 35 pounds of this currency was imported into El Paso for shipment on to Los Angeles. Most of the notes were of the 50 centavos denomination though a few were of higher denominations. F. V. Sorrels, the agent in charge of the El Paso office of the U. S. Secret Service, tried to obtain a court order to confiscate the money on the grounds that it would fall into the hands of counterfeiters who would use the numerals in raising genuine money or counterfeiting good bank notesThe El Paso Times, 10 May 1935. However, he was advised by Assistant U. S. District Attorney W. S. Howe that this would not be possibleThe El Paso Times, 11 May 1935.
Finally, as a footnote to the Villista issues, we can note that when Roberto Fierro Villalobos took over as governor of Chihuahua in 1935 he found in the state treasury just seven pesos, and half a million in Villista notesRoberto Fierro Villalobos, Esta es mi vida, Mexico, 1964.
There is a complete set of all denominations as Series M. These are very crude, and the central section has a single type of background shading without the horizontal lines and denomination behind the signatures. These cannot have been intended for circulation, or as movie money, so must have been prepared as curios and souvenirs. The ‘control letters’ RKOT and NSHM might be some clue to authorship.
