The rear of the 10 Nuevos Soles bill shows once again José Abelardo Quiñones Gonzáles photographed on the day of his graduation, performing an extremely acrobatic presentation. He flew his airplane, a "Caproni 113" upside down only about two meters above the ground. The occasion was the end of the academic year 1938 in the headquarters of the flight school "Central de Aeronáutica - Jorge Chávez".
Banknotes in Peru that were issued from 1991 until 2008 have similar security features, making the verifying process much easier.
