Today we are excited to offer for sale a very rare and all original antique Porfiriato-era Mexican peso from the 2nd republic. This lavishly illustrated bill features a portrait of Manuelita Garcia Teruel alongside a central medallion illustrated with a moving locomotive. The bill is also perforated with the text San Luis Potosi (one of Mexicos 32 States) on the right half of the front. The date reads 1885 while the serial numbers read 094222. Bill is in fairly good condition considering it’s age and use. It has been previously repaired with tape which you can see in the photos. A worthy project for a person with conservation skills. No mold, pet, smoke odor or other surprises. Please view all pictures for a closer look. Fresh to the market!
