Owner's Description

These notes for 1910 have two different signature varieties. The banknotes all feature Christopher Columbus on the obverse of the notes. And the national coat of arms on the reverse.

From what I could find these notes were originated through a contract from the Government with a wealthy businessman by the name of Alfredo Pellas (his descendants are still very prominent business owners running several successful businesses within Nicaragua including the famous Nicaraguan Rum Flor de CaƱa) on the 9th of January 1910. For the 10 Pesos notes there was to be 325,000 printed with a face value of 3,250,000 pesos.

There was an executive decree #122 on the 27th of March 1911 under the new government authorising to print the same amount of notes but this time they were printed with the signature new President Juan Estrada. Based on the serial numbers they continued this series from 325000 through to 650000.

This particular note is a specimen of the A type with the first signature variety.

Christopher Columbus was of course the famous Italian explorer that mistakenly had discovered the Americas.
