La Tesoreria de la Junta Comercial de Chalchicomula

Puebla ChalchicomulaChalchicomula (now Ciudad Serdán) is a city in the east of the state, just off the route from Puebla to Veracruz.

On 13 June 1916 the Junta Comercial, with the approval of  the Jefatura de Armas and Ayuntamiento, issued a series of notes to supplement Carranza’s infalsificables. The higher value notes carry the printed signatures of Raymundo Abasolo, as Presidente, José María de la Torre as Tesorero and Ricardo R. Sarmiento as Secretario, whilst the two lower values only had space for de la Torre’s facsimile.

Some $1 notes are known overprinted ‘Solo Vale CINCUENTA CENTAVOS Papel Infalsificable’.
