Notes
There is no indication of print.

These notes did not carry the signatures of the Minister of Finance and the director of the Amortization Fund, were signed. The autograph was a signature or visa from an employee of the person responsible for checking that the notes were free of printing errors and also for assigning a different pattern to the notes, since there are no two completely identical signatures.

Proof banknote
A proof note is printed with a purpose of establishing the quality, design and other properties of the printing. Proof notes may be unfinished in design and may be missing certain characteristics (serial number, colour, and printing phase) that one would expect to see on a finished note. Proof notes are usually made to aid the printer and the issuing authority with the selection of design, colour, etc. A proof note can sometimes bear a 'specimen' overprint. Cancellation holes may be present. Proof notes are usually scarce and unavailable to the public.
