I mostly collect Canadian, but these Mexican "revolutionary" notes are among my favorite. Canadian charter banknote collectors might recognized these great vignettes:

The 10 peso note has the same vignette as the Traders Bank $100 (circa 1900?, don't have my book handy). These large size notes (remainders) come up on Ebay (search:Mexico) from time to time and are relatively inexpensive compared to their Canadian counterparts. A real pleasure to own.
