There is a trio of checks I seemed to have missed scanning that I need to post. I know they have been in my collection a long time, and are super-snazzy. Must remember to share...


I'm here to remind you...

Those Hopkinton checks are lovely! I especially like the eagle in the upper right. Thanks for posting those!

I seem to remember I picked those up at an antiques shop many years ago... which means they were cheap... Looking at them now, they aren't quite as snazzy as I thought they were BUT I still like them!

Yes, please! That Civil War check is quite interesting -- looks like it was kind of an early USO for Union troops. And I always like engraved items, so that Colorado check is very appealing. Keep 'em coming!

I love all those proof checks! Thanks for posting them. The top one has a famous vignette called "The Crossing." You can read more about it here:

On the far right, next to the horseman is some extremely tiny microprinting. I'd be curious if it is legible on your copy, if you can scan it at very high resolution (2400 dpi or greater).
