FEDERAL RESERVE BANK
OF NEW YORK

January 13, 1938.

NEW COUNTERFEIT
To Member Banks in the Second Federal
Reserve District and Others Concerned:
Circular letter No, 699, dated January 12, 1938, of the Treasury Department, Secret Service Division, describes a certain new counterfeit as follows:
$5 UNITED STATES NOTE
Series of 1928 B; check letter "A"; face plate No. 214; back
plate No. 784; W. A. Julian, Treasurer of the United States; Henry
Morgenthau, Jr., Secretary of the Treasury; portrait of Lincoln,
This is a fairly deceptive production printed on one sheet of
bond paper from photo-etched plates. The Treasury seal, printed in
red, is crudely executed and the motto barely discernible, while the
fine points enclosing the outer circle are rounded and misshaped.
The serial numbering, also in red, is heavily printed, and all specimens to date show B21854686A.
.
Care should be exercised in handling notes of this variety and
denomination, as this counterfeit will deceive the unwary.
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 of the Secret Service are located in Albany, Buffalo, Syracuse and
New York City, New York, and in Newark, New Jersey.
