    A Second Doubly Secure Counterfeit Detector Bill

    Continental Currency Counterfeit Detector January 14, 1779 $40 PMG About Uncirculated 55.
    A second note on exactly the same theme as the previous lot, in this instance a second precaution was taken by drawing a line through where the serial number should appear and writing the words, "Proof Bill," in the signature block. In a more active Colonial market, these would be highly sought and far more expensive. In today's market, both this and its companion in the previous lot will barely reach into four figures. This catalogers' suggesting purchase for future appreciation is generally the kiss of death, but we really like this and the note above.
