DescriptionContinental Currency April 11, 1778 $5 Contemporary Counterfeit PCGS Extremely Fine 45.
Only a single variety of counterfeit Five Dollar Yorktowns is listed in Newman. Five Dollar Yorktown counterfeits are, for some reason, nearly as rare as the genuine examples. We've handled nine Five Dollar Yorktowns over the years; five have been genuine and four counterfeit, as compared to $40 notes, where we've handled 28, with 22 being counterfeits. This note is well margined, well signed and clearly printed on both sides. The diagnostics of the Counterfeit described in Newman are extremely plain, but even without those, the note is an obvious Counterfeit, with a very poor attempt at the nature print on the back.
