It May Well be however that cos or Dos Aro in circulation because both the a and denotes Are evidently printed from one and the same plate the Check letter being altered by thu counterfeiter after printing a portion. It therefore Niay have been altered to j or d after printing the a and b. The most obvious Points of difference be?., tween the genuine and counterfeits a Are in the size of the Seal in the numbering in the Central Vignette in the fibr Der of the lathe. Work in the counters and in the treasurer s signature. The details of the differences Are As follows a \ it a a the counterfeit Seal is one sixteenth of an Inch larger than the genuine and of iii. A Dill Ruee in is due to to i it Points of the Seal alone Points being longer than tie it Naim. The Central portions of the Seal ate of the in both the. Counterfeit and the genuine.

There Many other minute Points of difference a Thep Central Vignette particularly in the drapery which a careful comparison will disclose. the Border of the counterfeit note Tho Black Central Star has Points of very irregular length while those in the genuine to perfectly regular and uniform in their length. The counterfeit has Moro White space about the Central Star than the genuine Aud.
