DescriptionContinental Currency May 20, 1777 $8 Contemporary Counterfeit PMG Very Fine 25.
The first of the two different counterfeits described in Newman. This one was caught during its time in circulation and it has had the vignette crossed out in pen, and the word 'counterfeit' is pen written on the text across the face. An interesting and historic relic of Britain's economic warfare aimed at the pocketbook of the fledgling United States.
