Acapulco

These two notes have been approved by the Huertista military authorities - the 50c is dated May 1914 and  has the stamp of the COMANDANCIA MILITAR – ACAPULCO, GRO. and visto bueno of El General Comandante Militar whilst the $1 is dated 1 July 1914 and has a stamp of ‘BATTALON     ‘. However, they have more of a commercial than a military provenance, as the signature is of Alzuyeta y Cia., Sucs.

AlzuyetaAlzuyeta y Cia. was one of the foremost commercial concerns in Acapulco, and, among other businesses, operated as bankers and commission agents.

The $1 was printed by Bouligny & Schmidt, in Mexico City.
