This section contains a couple of documents relating to paper money in Oaxaca.

People who are interested in the revolutionary paper money of this state should join the U. S. Mexican Numismatic Association and view The Oaxaca Credit Bonds of 1915-1916 by Nicholas Follansbee 2004 (http://usmex.org/wp/wp-content/uploads/2013/08/The-Oaxaca-Credit-Bonds-of-1915-1916.pdf). This is an incredibly detailed study of these notes which builds on Rosovsky’s work that made a fairly complete listing by date and series letter but mentioned only the more obvious typographic varieties. Follansbee includes some letter series discovered since 1974; distinguishes the different plates and paper used, and lists the various types according to date, denomination, series letter, portrait and position of the Treasury seal. He also gives a rough idea of the size of the various printings and identifies various inscription errors and varieties.
