La Plata. No information was available on this bank which was located in La Plata, which is about 60 kilometers from Buenos Aires. La Plata is the capital of the Province of Buenos Aires. Since it is not dated, it is listed as a remainder. This is one of two notes seen by the author. The other, which is in a private collection, is very similar to this one in that it has a low serial number, is signed but is not dated. Like this one, it appears to have circulated. As these notes were redeemable with interest, it is believed that all of them were redeemed. It is very likely that this note did actually circulate but possibly was not redeemed since it did not have the date. PMG mentions Small Pieces Missing, Internal Tears on the reverse.
