Description:
ORIGINAL PLATES from a BANKING HOUSE size Heath Counterfeit Detector, the leading reference fro banking and financial institutions in post-Civil War America.  Under special agreement with the United States Treasury Department, Heath was granted permission to reproduce genuine printing plates (although canceled with a pie shape) as guides for comparison of suspect notes.
DEMAND NOTES- among the scarcest type of United States paper money--were referred to as "green Backs" in the era and for the purpose of historical continuity are referred to in the same manner.
Plate 3: with "counters" from $5 and $20 "green back", $10 "counter" from National Currency, the vignette of Lincoln from a $10 "green back", the vignette of Alexander Hamilton from a $5 "green back" and a patriotic heraldic eagle.
