Click on an image to enlarge
This is a great piece of Colonial American Currency. What is cool about this note is that it is an original counterfeit version of colonial money. They have counterfeited currency since they started making original currency. This one is nicely done and is knocking off one that was issued for the sum of fifty dollars. The front of the bill has the wonderful wording of "Continental Currency" across the top. Also on the front of the note is the issuance date of September 26th 1778. This is one of the first notes that was made and issued under the fledgling United States Government. The early colonial currency is a wonderful thing to collect. Each note was hand designed with meaning to each image. This one has the image on the front of the note that shows a 13 stepped pyramid (one for each colony). This is one of my favorite designs. It shows that anything worth having is worth going though some hard work. Around the image is the Latin motto "PERRINNIS" which translates to "Everlasting". On the front of the note it has the correct hand signed ink signatures and the hand numbered serial numbers. On the back of the note it has the design of the three arrows in the center. Below that are the printer's mark and the date of 1778. The note was printed by Hall & Sellers of Philadelphia. Before this partnership Hall printed currency with Benjamin Franklin. The note measures approximately 3 inches by 3.75 inches in overall size and is in attractive displaying circulated condition. It was professionally graded by the PCGS Company and they rated it as "FINE" and it comes in their acid free holder for display and preservation. This is a nice early United States piece of counterfeit paper money.
