act of Julv 1-, 1SS2, department
series A .'if'-'J IS. Apart from the
counterfeit containing thu figure '20
on the face, and the jxirtrait of (iar
Hold, there is little or the gray of the
photograph about it. Thu seal is
small and scnllocil, having a red
dish tinge, apparently applied with
a brush. Tho number is very pro
nounced and heavier than in tho
genuine. Tho surface on tho noto
is one-half uu inch shorter and one
eight of an inch narrower than the
genuine. It has the two parallel
silk threads running through it.
The tint on the back of the note is
light brown, while in the genuine
notes it is orange. This counterfeit
is determined by the character of
its tints rather than by the lines iu
tho engraving, as it is a photograph
of gunuine work. Watoli out for it.
