Teocelo de Díaz

Teocelo is located 20 kilometres from Jalapa and is bordered by Ixhuacán, Xico and Coatepec.

In 1898 it received the title of city and the name Teocelo de Díaz but by decree of 15 October 1914 the city’s name was changed to Teocelo (a change not reflected on these notes).

Several different private issues, mostly for 50c, have survived. They claim that they were to address an issue of short change and were to be exchanged only for banknotes in multiples of five pesos (ESTOS VALES SUPLEN AL NUMERARIO; POR CONSIGUIENTE SOLO SERAN CAMBIADOS POR BILLETES DE BANCO NO MENORES DE CINCO PESOS). Later issues, in 1915, have an additional rubric ‘Estos vales son puramente transitorios y solo para las necesidades de Teocolo’

Ciudad de Mexico 50c

This must have had official authorization as it was exempted from the requirement to carry revenue stamps (SIN TIMBRES POR DECRETO DEL GOBIERNO).

We also know of a 2c vale.
