Flooded With Bogus Money

New York, 1895

Local storekeepers and saloon men at Hicksville are much exercised over the flooding of the town with counterfeit coin. The coin is of the denominations of dollars, half dollars and quarters. Nearly every business man in town has been imposed upon.

—The Long Island Farmer, Jamaica, NY, Feb. 8, 1895, p. 4.
