Owner's Description

These notes that were overprinted on the 20 Cordobas P152 notes from 1988 have several different prefixes from FA - FD and the replacement notes were ZA. None of these prefixes were used for this 500,000 cordoba overprint note only the unused prefixes FE, FF and the replacement notes such as this one were ZB. I don't have any information on how many were produced but its quite possible there was up to 10,000,000 for each prefix (as I have seen serial numbers from 0-9) so quite possibly up to 20 million were produced and issued.

These banknotes feature designs from previous 20 Cordoba issues. The obverse features Commander German Pomares Ordoñez a revolutionary and considered a national hero. He was one of the founders of the Frente Sandinista (FSLN), he fought against the ruling Somoza government and was killed only months before the Sandinistas claimed victory. The reverse of the banknote features a demonstration on agrarian reform with a banner that translates to "We are not birds to live off the air, we are not fish to live off the sea, we are men to live off the land".
