DescriptionContinental Currency September 26, 1778 $40 Contemporary Counterfeit PCGS Fine 15.
This is the second of the two different counterfeits listed in Newman. The easiest diagnostic is that the "m" in "milled" tilts down and to the right. On the genuine, it's perfectly level. The copper plate used to print the face of this counterfeit is in the collection of the Smithsonian Institution. In spite of the rather low grade, the note is more than clear enough for study.
