    Description

    Massachusetts June 18, 1776 24s Contemporary Counterfeit PMG Choice Uncirculated 63 EPQ. A very sophisticated counterfeit, and one of the few produced for this issue. The note was detected during its time of circulation, and identified as a counterfeit by crosshatching in pen on both sides. On this particular issue, there is an easy "tell" for the counterfeit note. The capital "T" in Treasury in the seventh line of the text is almost exactly above the "1" in "18th" of the next line on the counterfeit. On the genuine note, the "T" is much farther to the right, centered over the space between the "1" and the "8" of "18th." This note is the finest quality Small Sword in Hand counterfeit that we have encountered. PMG has awarded it both the Choice Uncirculated grade and the important EPQ modifier. Counterfeits have been increasing both in popularity and price over the past few years, and we would expect this beauty to easily enter the four-figure range.
