Notes

After the issues with double overprint, in the values of 20, 50, 100 and 200 Cruzeiros (rosette stamp), with a shortage of cash in the circulating environment, in the amount of 1 Cruzeiro, and without the government being able to supply it, it used of the Bank's inventory of 1 Mil Réis banknotes and their issue. These banknotes, with a value equivalent to 1 Cruzeiro, entered into circulation without any super impression, such as the one made in the previous series. The distinction of Banco do Brasil's issuance must be made by the serial number, which ranges from 279th to 500th, and by the single signature, in the diagonal direction.
They are known as MANOLITAS.
