DescriptionCT - Lot of 2 Connecticut March 1, 1780 40 Shillings Notes: Genuine and Counterfeit Comparison Pair.

EF, slash cancelled; CT-225 Contemporary Counterfeit. Much different printing style. Noted by Eric are the size of "r" and "R" in Hartford and March as specific diagnostics. But overall, it just looks different and distinctive. Good to VG, some fissure voids and rough right edge.
Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. (Total: 2 notes)
