    New Jersey April 16, 1764 30s Contemporary Counterfeit PMG Very Fine 30. Not unlike your three-year-old niece's drawing of a cat hanging on your refrigerator, there is a certain charm to this note's crudeness. The New Jersey coat of arms in particular is an eye catcher. The Lion's head appears to be a jack-o'-lantern with hair. Strangely, all three of the signatures are rather good imitations of the genuine. When these are seen, they are generally rather low grade, and this one would make a very nice addition to any Colonial collection as an example of what the more nefarious of our forefathers produced in spite of the warning, "To Counterfeit is Death."
