by Nicholas Follansbee 2004

An incredibly detailed study of these Oaxaca revolutionary notes. Builds on Rosovsky’s work that made a fairly complete listing by date and series letter but mentioned only the more obvious typographic varieties. Follansbee includes some letter series discovered since 1974; distinguishes the different plates and paper used, and lists the various types according to date, denomination, series letter, portrait and position of the Treasury seal. He also gives a rough idea of the size of the various printings and identifies various inscription errors and varieties.
