Administracion de Hacienda y Credito Publico
In 1855, the government asked Perkins Baker (London) to prepare a set of banknotes using vignettes selected from their archives. They were printed in pairs horizontally without any color on card stock. The pairs of proof notes were sent for approval but based on the failure of the two previous banknote issues, the government decided not to order them. There is no record of the number of these pairs of notes that were sent to the government or why they sent multiple pairs with less pairs for higher denominations.
