Some few Counterfeit Poft-Nntes of the
Bank of Maryland, having been Jarely disco
vered in circulation, and on tracing 'he fame
were found to come fiom the back parts of
Virginia, where they probably firft iflued ; to
avoid imposition it is thought ncceflary to
give the following defcriptioft of them, by
which they may readily be detcftfd.
They have the letter D, fo/Vhe-r alphabeti
cal mai k, at the left hand fide of the Note.
H The paper on which they are prinred is
more foft and tender, the strokes of the letters,
in the engraving are in general flronger, and
have a darker appearance than in the bills.
The signature William Patterfon, is badlv
done, the strokes of the letters, are ftiff and
labored, and appear to be painted over with
the pen, as well as the flouriftiing of the name.
Tuevrflue is left blank in the engraving, to
be filled up in writing, so the furn may be
more oriels at phafure.
No true Pt ft-Notes of the alphabetical
mark, above d'feribed, have been lately if-
