New Counterfeit $10 Federal Reserve Note
To all Banks, Trust Companies and Savings Banks
in the Second Federal Reserve District:
A new counterfeit $10 Federal Reserve Note is brought to your

attention.

The Secret Service Division of the Treasury Department has described the note in

" O n the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City, Missouri; check letter
' B ' ; W. G. McAdoo, Secretary of the Treasury; John Burke, Treasurer of
of the United States; portrait of Jackson.
" T h i s counterfeit is printed from photographic plates, and is clearly
the work of an amateur.

The bill is about a half inch shorter than

the

genuine, and the face is brown instead of black, and the back blue instead
of green.

The number of the specimen a t hand is J7509902A.

I t is a

poor counterfeit."




Very truly yours,
