DescriptionContinental Currency February 17, 1776 $5 Blue Counterfeit Detector PMG Gem Uncirculated 66 EPQ.
Extremely high grade for a detector note, and one of the nicest we have handled for any issue or denomination. These detectors were distributed to merchants and Financial institutions to hold for comparison with the notes they received to determine genuineness. The blue color was used so that the notes could not be falsely signed and spent. Every Continental collector should have a detector to represent this interesting type, and this finest-known example would be a perfect piece. The PMG census shows this to be the finest known by a huge margin, with its closest rival an AU.
