||Continental Currency. May 20, 1777 $6 Newman 1.3 Contemporary Counterfeit Fr. CC-67CF. PCGS About New 50. The third variety of this First United States issue counterfeit. This stands out compared to the prior two because the back is in the incorrect juxtaposition relative to the face. No. 44907. Printed on thin paper. Diagnostics: Newman 1.3: Engraved. On the face: Same as Newman 1.1 and 1.2 previous except that under the vignette, the period after DOLLARS has been added. On the back: The back is now in the wrong juxtaposition relative to the face. (The counterfeit bill, when turned horizontally from the face, has the stem of the leaf pointing upward toward the viewer's right, rather than downward toward the viewer's left on the genuine bill.) Pleasing and clean looking. Modest handling seen along the perimeter. A superior example. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
From Newman X (Heritage Auctions, November 2018), lot 20062, realized $600.
