Abstract

counterfeiting is the unlawful production of any article in imitation of another, especially the imitation of money. Many states encountered problems with counterfeiters during the 1830s and 1840s. Arkansas was not without her ganges of counterfeiters who worked in the cities of Little Rock, Van Buren and Lewisburg. These gangs copied not only paper money but coins, corporation notes and bank notes.
