    Small Sword in Hand Contemporary Counterfeit

    Massachusetts June 18, 1776 $4 (24s) Contemporary Counterfeit PMG Extremely Fine 40.
    Featuring the iconic Sword In Hand vignette of a soldier holding a drawn sword and a scroll representing the Magna Charta, this reasonably well executed counterfeit with a forged signature of Ellis is betrayed by the position of the "T" in "Treasury" directly above the "1" in "18th". A very scarce type even as a contemporary counterfeit.


    Estimate: $400 - up.
