(Signed) Wayne C. Taylor Acting Secretary of the Treasury (v3) FEDERAL RESERVE BANK OF N E W YORK August 28, 1937. NEfl COUNTERFEIT To Member Banks in the Second Federal Reserve District and Others Concerned: Circular letter No. 696, dated August 26, 1937, of the TreasuryDepartment, Secret Service Division, describes a certain new counterfeit as follows $5 SILVER CERTIFICATE Series of 1934; check letter variable (B, C and E appearing on specimens showing to date); face plate No, 415; back plate No, 786; W. A. Julian, Treasurer of the United States; Henry Morgenthau, Jr., Secretary of the Treasury; portrait of Lincoln, This counterfeit is printed on a single sheet of poor quality bond paper, from photo-mechanical plates of ordinary workmanship, and the face and back are about three-eighths of an inch shorter than the genuine. The portrait is lifeless and not clearly defined, and the note, generally, presents a dull appearance, the printing thereon showing entirely too dark, especially that of the scroll work and portrait. The serial numbers and seal also appear too heavily printed on some of the specimens. The Berial numbers are printed with a noticeable upward slant from left to right. This note should not deceive the careful handler of money. The Treasury Department has requested that any counterfeits which come to the attention of banks or others be forwarded with all available information to the office of the United States Secret Service having jurisdiction in their territory. Offices cf the Secret Service are located in Albany, Buffalo, Syracuse and New York City, New York, and in Newark, New Jersey. George L. Harrison, President,
