Nogales  A black oval (56x35mm) stamp with ‘ADUANA FRONTERIZA DE NOGALES SON. - ADMINISTRACION’ and date in centre. Known dates range from [ ] to [ ].

This stamp was used by the customs house when they checked currency that had been brought in from the United States.

On 15 May 1915 locals from Rayón wrote to the government that 70% of the currency in circulation there were Monclova and Ejército Constitucionalista notes without revalidation (sellos) and it was impossible for most people to get their money revalidated. Although they had been revalidating notes in the Tesorería General del Estado and in the customs house (Aduana de esa población) for some time they had learnt that the government has suspended revalidating Monclova and Ejército Constitucionalista notes, which would render their money uselessAGHES, Fondo Oficialidad Mayor, tomo .
