Owner's Description

Just like the fractional banknotes the 1938 1 Cordoba had two different design releases in the same year.

These banknotes had the same design as those issued previously in 1932 and 1937. They were printed by ABNC (American Bank Note Company). They feature the effigy of woman (believed to be French) with an exposed breast on the obverse and the national coat of arms on the reverse.

I believe there to have been 600,000 1 Cordoba banknotes produced. Released via two decrees into circulation.

The first executive decree number 96 on the 14th of November 1938 authorised the release of 200,000 with serial numbers 000001 through to 200000.

The second executive decree number 105 on the 22nd of December 1938 authorised a further release of 400,000 banknotes from serial number 200001 through to 600000.
