A couple of times a year, or so, we get someone from the nearby 7-11 contact our store with what they think might be a counterfeit note. They are always an older note such as a red seal or silver certificate. I can't
recall ever that one turned out to be actually counterfeit. We're occasionally contacted by law enforcement about the same.
People do need to be vigilant against counterfeits, but sometimes their suspicions are misplaced, especially with older, genuine notes that circulate less frequently. It's not a new problem, as shown
in the next item. -Editor

Reading the interesting story about Emory Ellis and his "fake" $10 bill in the latest E-Sylum reminded me of a 10 Shilling note I acquired many years ago, which I thought might be interest to readers. It
came with the newspaper excerpt shown.
Thanks, everyone. -Editor
