§ 1815. Description of paper forged or counterfeited
In a complaint, information, or indictment for forgery or counterfeiting, or for uttering and publishing as true an instrument, document, or paper which may be the subject of the offense of forgery or counterfeiting, it shall be sufficient to describe such instrument, document, or paper by the name or designation by which it is usually known or by the purport thereof, without setting forth a copy or facsimile or otherwise describing the same or its value. A misnaming of such instrument, document, or paper shall not affect the cause, provided, that as set forth, the same appears to be any one of the instruments, documents, or papers that is made a subject of the offense of forgery or counterfeiting.
