Revalidation stamps on Veracruz Gobierno Provisional notes

Overprints on the Veracruz Gobierno Provisional notes can be divided into those revalidating the notes (which could be applied before the notes were put into circulation for the first time) and those marking that the notes had been withdrawn from circulation. The latter will have been applied in offices before the notes were accumulated together for incineration, in accordance with the prescribed regulations.

On 27 September 1915 Rafael Nieto stated that his office had refrained from issuing information on counterfeits because, without simultaneous explanations, it would cause alarm. As General González and others sources had made pronouncements that had calmed the public he now announced that there would be an exhibition in the central patio of the National Palace of all the different issues made by the Gobierno Constitucionalista, and that all genuine notes of the Ejército Constitucionalista and Veracruz issues would be revalidated in the Oficina Impresora de Estampillas, in Mexico City, and in the Oficina Impresora de Billetes, in VeracruzEl Democrata, Tomo II, Núm.304, 29 September 1915.
