--Counterfeit fives on the Merchants' Bank of Lynchburg
, are in circulation.
The spurious notes may be known by a vignette, representing six Presidents
in the centre, with the figure 5 in medallion at the upper right and left hand corners, and a star in medallion at each of the lower corners.--The word "five," is printed in a semi-circle midway between the ends of the note, and near the lower edge.
The signature of R. C. Mitchell
, Cashier, is well executed, but that of C. R. Slaughter
These notes are supposed to be put in circulation by somebody following the army, and we caution the soldiers especially against receiving them.
The genuine notes are wholly unlike the counterfeit.
