Codes on the Banco Oriental de México notes

The notes had a code in Roman numerals. These were applied in sequence, as in the table below.

There were some anomalies. The codes used I instead of X in CIL (140) and following and in CCIL (240) and following. In the $5 sequence the numbering lost an initial C after CCLXXX (280), the next number being CLXXXI (181).

The codes for the $100 dated 3 February 1910 (CCXXVII-CCXXX and CCLXII) are out of sync. Like most things, the system broke down during the Revolution.
