Description: A beautiful crisp uncirculated Banknote from the State of Chihuahua in Mexico. The note was issued by "The State of Chihuahua" or "El Estado De Chihuahua." This is the 10 February 1914 decree series L, One Peso. The banknote depicts the portraits of Francisco Madero (President of the United Mexican States) and Abraham Gonzales (Governor of the State of Chihuahua) in black and white over a blue colored background with black writing on the front. It displays the denomination at the four corners and has three signatures. The back is blue in color with the image of the capitol building in its center within a frame and surrounded by two winged allegorical animals. The back also has the denomination displayed in all four corners. The back does have a red scalloped treasury seal for the state of Chihuahua left of center, the date 11-10-15 stamped in red at top center (making it Pick S530e), and the letters EVA-XX in red right of center. This particular note has the serial number 8384473 on the front twice in red and does not display the serial number on the back. The note has three signatures only displayed on the front but has no water mark that we could find. The paper of the note retains its full stiffness and crispiness with no folds or wrinkles. The colors of the note are vivid and beautiful. Please carefully review the scans as they are part and parcel of our description.

Printer: Unknown.

Size: The banknote measures ~7 1/4" by ~3 1/8".

Pick Number: S530e.

Condition: I would grade this banknote as crisp uncirculated with all the being very well preserved. The note has no folds, creases, or wrinkling. It is clean with no soiling, pinholes, or edges wear of any sort. The corners are intact and squared with no observable rounding. The note retains all of its original stiffness, crispiness, and sheen. The note has no graffiti, no tears, or splits. The note which most likely was never circulated has light red stains on the front right of center, which we believe happened at the printing press as a result of stacking the notes with the red lettering on the back. Be that as it may, this is a beautiful crisp note worthy of a spot in your collection of Mexican banknotes. Please see scans for additional condition information.
