Counterfeit Web Note?

I don't think so. It looks like a genuine note mistaken as a counterfeit due to lack of sharpness and overall quality. That's why the Web note experiment was discontinued. What do you think?

    I believe it’s genuine. I have yet to see a counterfeit WEB note.

    Per my Schwartz/Lindquist, Boston did print that serial number in the 1988-A series, and the front and back face plates are also ok. Nothing seems like a counterfeit to me. Except that, of course, the web notes looked kind of like counterfeits to begin with, so I can understand somebody deciding that the note was bogus, but it looks good to me.

    It looks like a case of mistaken identity. Someone wasn't familiar with web notes or how they look. The note appears genuine.

    I kept one that I found in circulation many years before I realized that they looked like crap normally.
