Counterfeit $1 Estado de Sonora note Type 4
The circular of 20 October 1914 lists the following indications for $1 notes.
|accent of ‘a’ of ‘Pagará’ is slanted to the left||accent slanted to the right|
|blue of numbering and seal tends towards black (tira a negro)||blue is very light|
|‘El Gobernador’ followed by a comma||'El Gobernador’ followed by a full stop|
|typeface of letters and numbers coarser|
|lines in the shaded area of ‘El Estado de Sonora’ are very thin, separate and the impression is entirely legible||lines are very thick, with some joined to form dark smudges|
|print totally uniform and clear||print very imperfect and smudged|
Though counterfeits Type 1 through to 3 have a full stop rather than a comma after 'El Gobernador' and coarse shading to 'El Estado de Sonora' the other characteristics suggest that this is yet another Type.
