    Description

    Massachusetts December 7, 1775 36s Contemporary Counterfeit PMG Choice Very Fine 35. This is one of the more deceptive contemporary counterfeits and the highest grade example that we have handled. The note is well printed, well signed, and clearly circulated, at least briefly, alongside the genuine notes. The note has the look of a genuine example and is distinguished from the genuine only by minute differences in engraving. The easiest ones to spot are the straight vertical main masts on the ship vignette. On the genuine examples, the masts slant to the right. An unusually bright, clean and very attractive note that will not realize anywhere near the $7,000 or so that a genuine in this grade would realize. Pen cancelled on front, with counterfeit written on back and penned "X" on soldier's face.
