MATANZAS. Accion de 500 Pesos. black, buff. #5650. No 1165. Large format with several small brown spots. A very fine and early Cuban bank, founded 1858, of the same name as the well-known Spanish 18th century Banco de San Carlos, but probably no connection. Superb vignette of the city and port of Matanzas, with arms of Spain and the city. Matanzas was the commercial centre and major port for the Cuban sugar industry, and this was doubtless the bank's main activity.
