Mexico – Banco Minero Chihuahuense 25 Centavos 1880 P-S172c. PCGS Very Fine 20. Another rare small change bill from a Mexican "Banco." Printed by the American Bank Note Company. This small-format note with yellow tint has a red circular stamp with "1883" below on the face. There is an action-packed mining vignette on the left with three men using a variety of tools. At the top, a workman is hard at work with a lever. At the left, one suspendered miner has his pickaxe raised while loose rock is already tumbling down. The scene is illuminated by light spilling in from the shaft. There is an elaborately designed blue back. A bright face and a difficult-to-find type. Ex: Eric P.
