    Description

    Massachusetts June 18, 1776 24s PCGS Apparent About New 50.
    A very sophisticated counterfeit, one of the few produced for this issue. The note as detected during its time of circulation, identified as a counterfeit by crosshatching in pen on both sides. On this particular issue, there is an easy counterfeiting "tell." 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." PMG has assigned the Apparent grade for minor stains. Unlike most of the few other counterfeits known for this issue, the note is not pen cancelled or cancelled in any form. It clearly circulated for a time alongside the genuine notes.
