Counterfeit Colonial and Obsolete Currency
The list below is a collection of known and documented counterfeit currency.  The term reproduction is really more accurate as these notes were never printed to enter commerce as legitimate legal tender.  In most circumstances they were sold at museums and historical sites.  Notes from this list have no collector value and are certainly not still good at face value.
