Rare arrest warrant issued for Allen Tucker on July 10th 1852 from the Court of Venango County of Pennsylvania in the township of Cranberry for counterfeiting. The warrant claims Allen Tucker intentionally forged a $10.00 bank note and presented it as payment to one William McCoy. The document states Tucker forged this note from the Farmers Bank of New Jersey. Interestingly enough the court warrant officer sketched a true life copy of the note on the warrant. Samuel Riddle is listed as district attorney for Venango County for T. Allison special deputy assigned in charge of arresting said suspect. This is the earliest example I have seen for a charge of counterfeiting. And as mentioned the sketch of the note in question is quite unusual. The forged note itself is dated in the year 1849 from Mount Holly, Pa.
A great edition to any currency collector's collection. 8' x 13 with natural folds.
