Bonds for unpaid salaries

On a couple of occasions, Zacatecas, like other states, lacked the resources to pay the public employees. It therefore issued them with bonds that could be used in future for the payment of taxes or other demands.

As such these are not paper currency, but are included here as they appear in various catalogues.
