Notes
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.
