Stack’s Bowers Galleries Official World Paper Money auction for the ANA World’s Fair of Money is shaping up to be another great sale. Many rarities and will cross the auction block, including this Mexico counterfeit P-S328 5 Pesos from the Banco de Jalisco in PMG About Uncirculated 55 EPQ.

An extremely popular and scarce counterfeit type, this note was printed by National Bank Note Company, under the assumption that Thomas Marshal, who ordered the notes, was a member of the board of directors of Banco de Jalisco. Marshal invented the story and had NBNC print 5,000 of these notes. NBNC copied ABNC's design thinking that ABNC had lost the contract to print the notes, and then shipped the order to a H.L. Middleton in New Orleans. Middleton started signing and selling the notes, but almost immediately was arrested by the United States Secret Service, who in turn confiscated the remaining notes. This note displays double zero serial numbers, and is from Series B.
