520 __|a A family in Omaha, Nebraska, has found a puzzling $6 bill dated February 17, 1776; they're eager to learn the story behind it. The bill's text and designs are replete with mysteries and clues. How can it claim to be federal currency when it's dated five months before the colonies actually declared their independence? Why does it say it's backed by "Spanish milled dollars?" What do the strange images on it mean? Britain rightfully considered these monies sheer provocation and reacted by flooding the market with counterfeit bills. Is the bill real - or perhaps real fakery? HISTORY DETECTIVES host Gwen Wright travels to New York City to investigate an artifact that could represent America's first declaration of its independence. 60 minutes.
