New Counterfeit

To all Banks, Trust Companies and Others Concerned
in the Second Federal Reserve District:

The Treasury Department in its circular letter No. 578 describes a new
counterfeit as follows:
$10 Federal Reserve Note
On Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago, Illinois; series 1914; check letter " C " ; face
plate No. 294; back plate number not discernible; D. F . Houston, Secretary of the
Treasury; John Burke, Treasurer of the United States; portrait of Jackson.
This is a photo-mechanical production on one sheet of paper on which pen and
ink lines have been traced in imitation of the silk fibre. The face of this counterfeit is
darker than in the genuine, the background in the portraiture and the fine lines in the
border lathework disclosing a smudgy appearance. The back of the note, while printed
in dull green, is more deceptive than the face. The seal and serial numbers are printed
in a bright blue, the specimen at hand being G42946069A.
Care should be exercised in handling notes of this variety.




Very truly yours,
BENJ. STBONG,

Governor.
