    Heath's Infallible Counterfeit Detector At Sight Banking and Counting House Edition Second Edition Laban Heath 1866/1867 Copyrights Patented July 12, 1867 Newman 2-BH-3.
    This example sports the incorrect patent date of July 12, 1867 (correct patent date is July 2, 1867). Heath did not do a first edition of the Banking and Counting House Edition. This large format second edition has a dark brown cover with gold lettering. Importantly, all of the pages including the plates are present. The book is not graded, but there is scuffing of both covers and the spine. Plate 4 shows partial separation from the spine, while plate 9 is loose and tipped in. This looseness is understandable as the books were poorly sewn and bound during the manufacturing process. Overall, it is a nice example of this edition.
