A dangerous counterfeit.
--We have been shown a bill of the denomination of fifty dollars, purporting to be a Confederate Treasury note, of the issue of September 2, 1862, which has been pronounced a counterfeit.--The bill has a likeness of President Davis
in the centre and an oblong square of green tint on each side of the same and under the figures 50, with a narrow strip of green tint running length wise across the foot of the note.
No color on the back.
The words "Confederate States
" are in German text, the capitals being heavier than the other letters.
The likeness of Mr. Davis
has a slight defect about the mouth, and the signatures seem to be engraved instead of being written.
The whole appearance of the bill is however, good, and if a counterfeit, as good judges have pronounced, it is well calculated to deceive.--Mason Confederate.
