    I don't have any scans handy, but I have several Mexico notes. There are some great designs: ABNC ones, both from the government and private banks. I like some of the modern ones too. Then there is a huge number of issues in the revolutionary period, like the nice one you posted. Mexico is one of my favorite countries to collect.

    I started collecting world notes about 4 years ago but don't have 1 from Mexico (yet). There's just so many fantastic world notes to collect! Very attractive note BTW (love the colour scheme & design on the back). <3

    Very attractive and the highly detailed work makes me look for the "De La Rue" printing mark but I don't see it.

    I have some, more raw then graded but I'll be scanning all of them. Waiting for my brother to bring them, hope he finds them all.

    All contemporary, most of mine are 100+ years old.

    Ok, here is my first one, was going to post the 2010 note with he train on it, but I'll do this one. First though does anyone know the pick number for it or know where I can access the catalogs until I get mine here.

    I found them on the streets of Mexico City about 8 years ago, for sale by some street vendor.

    This is P-60g "bammerbb." These beauties were printed from 1957-1970. I really like the gypsy design which changed slightly from P-57 (1953/54), P-34 (1937 Issue) & the first small format P-29 (1936) 5 Pesos. Just minor variations in the lettering. They started this design in 1925 with P-21 but this was the first large (180x83mm) format & the reverse has a different design (& it's quite scarce/expensive).

    Thank you sir!!! I've moved and I don't have my standard catalogs yet. Oh well, everyone here is so helpful, maybe I will get by. Must confess I love Mexican currency. I especially like the charter banks, I have at least one raw (Tamaulipas) that I'll try to get scanned and posted this evening. Again, thanks for the help.

    No problem. Happy to have helped. I also find the Bank Note Museum helpful.

    Lovely designs "SaorAlba!"

    I have a small hoard of Mexican notes that mostly comes from my grandparents and trips to Mexico when I was little.

    I got two 1915 1 Peso notes from Chihuahua at the 2020 FUN show, they are nicely uncirculated as they have no folds/tears and are really crisp. One of them says "VILLA" on the back which gives me a laugh. Also have a bunch of series 1914 1 and 5 Peso notes, they are circulated but the designs on both sides are awesome.

    There are several banknotes from Mexico and Mexican States that are quite attractive. Some are very affordable. Not everything that is interesting and worth collecting needs to be expensive.

    Experience the World through Numismatics...it's more than you can imagine.

    What you are calling the name "VILL-A" are actually control letters. I would assume they're having something to do with the production process. If anyone would know for sure and can give a concise explanation, I certainly be interested in reading it.

    Only one I have so far it is not my main collecting focus but will add 4-6 notes per year.

    The reverse is Mexico City, from the legend of the Eagle catching the snake
