The “2 de Abril” was a grocery owned by Adalberto Catalan. Adalberto Catalan had a hacienda in Mazatlan, Guerrero, expropriated by governor General Adrián Castrejón in 1915.

The grocery issued two series of notes. The rubber stamp on the first reads ‘OFICINA…………BEBIDAS SULTEPEC’. Sultepec is in the Estado de México, 100 kilometres southwest of Toluca and 250 kilometres north of Chilpancingo.

A second series with changes to typeface and Herminio Catalan. The rubber stamp on the reverse reads ‘FRANCISCO BRINGAS CORONEL AGENTE DE LIBROS’.
