The counterfeiting ut present is eon
flucti almost entirely to the coln issues of
tlie government. lt ia not generally
known that tho nickels and tho pennies
ure very successfully counterfeited, anti
that there ls no possible means of do
tectlug the spurious from tho genuine.
Tho nickels afford a very handsome protit.
All tho counterfeiters have to do is to go
to the Revised Statutes anti (hero they
find the materials to be used in their
making. All of (he metal employed is
base. A nickel costs thc government
about tyi cents. If tho government
lind the exclusive manufacture of these
coins there would he u great profit in
them. Bul (ht; coin can bo so easily re
produced that lhere is no means of esti
mating bow many of them arc put out of
ti?e counterfeit cl,ir ;, if the government
should decide to call in this class of coin
they would have to redeem the counter
feits as well, because tiny are nil made
of exactly the same material as the gov
ernment's issue. The bron/.'* pennies are
also counterfeited. There ls a pro IP lu
this. Tho bronze of which the pennies
are made costs twenty four cents a
pound. A pound of it will make 1(10 pen
liles. Tho only way this purl of Ibo cur
rency cnn bu detected would bo for con
gress to chungo the law BO that bullion to
tin' Milne of thc coin can be put in it.
Ono of tho latest kinds of counterfeit
ing is the Imitat ion of old coin-; for salo
to the numismatists, (?ne of Hie mosl
ingenious modes of deception in this class
of work is the changing of the dates of
sume common issue of a certain coin to
the tinto of a year whoso issue is scarce
niel consequently high. Tho old Liberty
dollar of INO-I is very scarce, lt is said
that there ure only seven genuine coins of
this issue in this country. The coin is

of $1,200 and upward. Tho counter
feiters have been quito successful in
changing 1 st) issues lo that of 1801. This
