    Description

    Heath's Infallible Counterfeit Detector Banking & Counting House Edition 1877.
    Laban Heath began printing counterfeit detectors in 1864 using original engraved government plates. This is a twelfth edition. Eleven plates are included with the last two in color. It does not have the Fractional Currency plates due to the fact that Fractional was no longer being printing when this edition was published. The majority of the gold color lettering on the front cover is gone and the binding is intact except for tears at the top and bottom. The inside binding is beginning to come loose, but the contents are still intact with the string binding. The pages are clean with relatively little staining. This is Newman variety 12-BH-2.
