Fm>e Dollar Bills of tke !Bank of (he
< United State*.
ALL that have appeared havjthe letter F.
for their Alphabetical TVlarJc.
The Texture of the is thkker and
whiter and it takes the ink more freely than I
the genuine paper. j
The O- in the 'W>rd Compear? isfmaller:
than the M- and othfr letters of thit word,
j so that a line extended from the tqp of iheO;
to touch the top of the M. would extend con
(jdtrably above the range M the whole word.
in the word IJnited the letters are narrow,
erand closer together .than the reft of tbtbill
I parallel, the f incliniog much more for.WjrJ
[ than the f.
I The engraving"is-badly executed,»be strokes
I of all the Letters are stronger and tfie devi e
I in particularly ismncji c«ar(er and
I appears darker in the true bills. Some
I of the counterfeits bear date in Where-
I ?s the Bank was not in'operation till Decern
I ber, and oo five dollar bills were ifitiea in
I ihat year.
I Twenty Dollar Bills of tbe Book tf North
ALL that have appeared have the letter
J B. for their alphabetical mark.
I They are printed on a paper nearly'fimitar
I to that of the couuterfait Five ©ottar Wntes
I above daftribed j the engraving is biitet eite-
I ucted, and they approach nearer to thp a|>-
I pearance of the genuine bills.
'The ftne rnled lines through the word Twev-
I ty, in the body of the bill, are in number th r-
I teen in the genuine bilk, »njtl but twelve in
I the counterfeits.
The word Cokpany is much like the faflie
I word in the Five Dollar B'.lJs as defer ibed a
-1 bove, the o being lets than them, and others
1 following. ~ ,
I There is no ftrok<? to the tin the wotfl Airtlt
I whereas in the genuine bills the stroke is well
I defined.
I The letters ft'in the word Twenty, to tre
I left hand at the bottom, do mot Bome dov+w to
I the line, but are so cut as to give an irregular
I appearance to the word., the Tai and they go-
I ing below them.
The ligoature 1 Nixon, has the appear -
• I ance ot being written with l.i«»b-bla<k and
\ I orl, and differs from other inks used in
1 Sprinting the bills and the' ca'(bier's flgnature.
I It is supposed thc(e forgeries were commuted
I in Tome of the Southern Staves, as all tbe co«ui-
I terfeits that have appeared, have come from |
I thence,*v persons have been apptehcn.d-
I ed in Virginia, on fafpicrion of be rug the aafhor
{ oi them.
1 The reward o< O&l THOUSAMQ DOLLARS
I will be paid to any Person or Perfpo* who (hall
I discover and prosecute to cohvi&iqn the fevetal

Other counterfeit bills
I of-the Bank of the United States hare appeared

The denomination is of TWENTY DOL
1 LARSj'and the alphabetical mark is tl e let
I ter IS.
I They may be dift'mguithei from the genu-
I ine by the following I\4AI«K-S •"
I The paper of the conntevfeits is of a mor<
I tender texture and gluiTey furface than the
I genuine, and there is no water mark in them.
I The letter, (i. in the word Caftfier, in tbe •
I true bills is ftrtoogly marked, wheieas in the
I counterfeits, the whole letter is a fine hair
I ftt;oke, evidentlyjn ap unfiniflied ftafe. The
I letter a in the w.urd demand, js badly formed
I and the whole word ill done, and there is no
I comma at the* end of it, as there is in the
I genuine bills. '
I The marginal device, is ippeh darker in
I the sals?, than in the genuine bills owing to
1 the ftiade strokes being coarser, much nearer
I togetlier, and etwfequeirtly much more nu-
I merous. This ilie eye at'ftfft
I view.
