Colima 50 Centavo note

I found this bill posted on Colima Antigua saying that it was issued in 1914.   Google searching for more I found many denominations issued around that time from all over Mexico. The notes were issued during the Mexican Revolution. The Revolution caused the collapse of the Mexican government as well as the intervention of the United States.   I guess with all the confusion and doubt it was safer for each state or region to print their own money.   I'll let you study more if interested.
