Forged Bill Law and Legal Definition

A forged bill is an unlawful bank bill. In a forged bill the signatures of the officers of the bank whence it purports to have been issued, are forged, or otherwise falsely affixed. It may be a legitimate or an illegitimate impression from the genuine plate, or it may be an impression from a counterfeit plate. [Kirby v. State, 1 Ohio St. 185, 187 (Ohio 1853)].
