Further Arrieta issues

There were two futher issues. These are a $5 note, dated August 1915, and a $10 note, dated October 1915 (marked TRANSITORIO (temporary) and later listed by Arrieta as a provisional issueCEHM, Fondo XXI-4, telegram Arrieta to Carranza 13 January 1916). They are the same design with a vignette of Justice as a $2 note, which is dated February 1915, but carries the signatures of the Villista Saravia, Olargaray and Gaxiola. Both the Saravia $2 note and the Arrieta $5 note refer to a decree of 12 December 1914 (but this is probably an error for 12 December 1913).

The earlier $10 had three signatures (Arrieta, [              ] and Clark)

 while later notes had just two signatures (Arrieta and [     ])

These $5 and $10 notes, as well as earlier Arrieta issues, Arrieta issues revalidated by the Convention, and Saravia issues are known with the same two seals (GOBIERNO CONSTITUCIONALISTA – DURANGO and DIRECCION GRAL. DE RENTAS – DURANGO and year date) on the reverse.

In addition, the $5 has the same reverse design as Garcia’s $5 issue of the following month, and is known with a (pre- issue) revalidation by Garcia’s administration, dated October 1915.

In his later telegram to CarranzaCEHM, Fondo XXI-4, telegram Arrieta to Carranza 13 January 1916 Arrieta acknowledged that he had issued the following amounts:
