Counterfeit resellos

Counterfeit notes are known with what appear to be genuine resellos, particularly the Inspección General de Policía in Toluca.

In addition, counterfeit notes were often revalidated with bogus resellos. For example, here is an example of a counterfeit $20 note with an impressive collection of three resellos:

The same combination of resellos is found on this $10 note.

The following are probably counterfeits of legitimate resellos.

Ciudad Juárez - Recaudación de Rentas:








Chihuahua - Tesorería General del Estado:

San Luis Potosí - Prefectura Regional:

The two-line Tesorería de la Federación revalidation was also counterfeited. The counterfeit has a cleaner impression; the 'R' of 'REVALIDADO' is futher to the left, almost over the 'r' of 'Por' and there is no full stop after '1914.
