DescriptionContinental Currency February 17, 1776 $2/3 Plate "B" Contemporary Counterfeit PCGS Very Fine 35.
An extremely rare Counterfeit Fractional Continental. These appear only to have been produced for the $2/3 denomination. Newman describes two different pieces, of which this is the first. The other has no plate letter and no detailed description. It's known only from contemporary archives, and it appears likely that that is this same counterfeit which had the plate letter added after its initial use. In any event, this is an extremely rare counterfeit. It's one of only two examples we know of, the other is permanently impounded in a museum.
