Comments


Important: The main difference between the references P # 196 and P # 196A is the watermark area. The first is white, the second is decorated with vertical lines.

As a curiosity: in May 1972 the national minimum wage in Brazil was Cr$ 268.80. So this ballot alone was equivalent to two minimum wages.
