How To Detect Counterfeit Money








In the space at disposal here, it is impossible of course to give a
complete illustrated counterfeit detector, but the following simple
rules, laid down by Bank Note Examiner Geo. R. Baker, will be found
extremely valuable:

Examine the form and features of all human figures: if graceful, and
features distinct, examine the drapery. Notice whether the folds lie
naturally, and observe whether the fine strands of the hair are plain
and distinct.

Examine the lettering. In a genuine bill is absolutely perfect. There
has never been a counterfeit put out but was more or less defective in
the lettering.

Counterfeiters rarely, if ever, get the imprint or engraver's name
perfect. The shading in the background of the vignette and over and
around the letters forming the name of the bank, on a good bill, is even
and perfect; on a counterfeit, it is uneven and imperfect.

The die work around the figures of the denomination should be of the
same character as the ornamental work surrounding it.

Never take a bill deficient in any of these points.



Big Trees.--Of ninety-two redwood trees in Calaveras Grove, Cal., ten
are over thirty feet in diameter, and eighty-two have a diameter of from
fifteen to thirty feet. Their ages are estimated at from 1,000 to 3,500
years. Their height ranges from 150 to 237 feet.
