    Description

    Continental Currency September 26, 1778 $5 Counterfeit Detector Very Choice New. This blue detector note is beautifully margined and flawless save for two as-made paper wrinkles. These detectors were printed from the genuine plates, and they circulated among merchants for the purpose of comparison with suspected counterfeits. They were printed on blue paper to prevent them from being falsely signed and circulated. This is an unusually nice example of the type.
