    A series of U.S. Postal Money Orders were determined to be counterfeits. They were separated into three distinct groups based on recurring printing defects. However, printing defects common to all of the counterfeits established that they shared a common source at some point in their production. The genuine money order used as a model was located and confirmed as the individual money order photographed to make the offset negatives used to print the counterfeits.
