Comments

The Banco Nacional de la República Oriental del Uruguay, despite its name, was not an oficial bank, funds were provided by private bankers, with share of the Government. It is considered as Private bank.

Bank had several branches, in the different departaments of the country, so many notes were overprinted (sealed) or perforated with names of the branches. Not overprinted notes correspond to Montevideo Central branch.

Signature variants:

Variant 1 (Image from Banknote Museum)


Variant 2 (Image from Banknote Museum)

Branches (variant c) were: Artigas, Canelones, Carmelo, Cerro Largo, Colonia, Durazno, Flores, Florida, Maldonado, Minas, Paysandú, Rio Negro, Rivera, Rocha, Rosario, Salto, San José, Soriano, Tacuarembo, Treinta y Tres
