Hello everyone, welcome to our new sub-forum. As a huge cheque, stock and bond enthusiast I was happy to see this advancement in our community.

Since it appears that half of the topics started in this new sub-forum are from me I figured why not start another.

I do not have all my notes in front of me (I stopped at my aunt's after work due to the snow) and hunkered down for the night. However I think I have enough knowledge in my head to start a thread on the paper ephemera of the Maritime Bank of the Dominion of Canada.

I would like to use this thread as a way to post the progress I make on collecting said memorabilia. I would also like to encourage anyone with something to add to post along.

The bank had three branches. It was based out of Saint John, New Brunswick and had branches in Fredericton and Woodstock.

Most of my ephemera is Woodstock based, as that is where I live. Here are some cheques and post cards. I have about 20 pages of information on Gilbert William Van Wart, the branch's banker, and will get a little biography put together in the next few days. Most of the information has been gleaned from local newspapers and diaries found in the town's archive.

Maybe I should have waited a few days to write up some information to help contextualize all my "stuff" but I am just so giddie we have a cheque forum. More information is to come in the following days.

Glad to see this new subforum, also! My area of collecting are stocks/bonds/checks with engraved vignettes by American Bank Note. So your checks are outside my knowledge base, but I'm always interested to learn.

I know an editor (and plenty of readers) that would be thrilled to have your information on Van Wart condensed into an article for the APNA!

I was half thinking about sending you a message when I get it all done, chequer.

I actually tracked down VanWart's 6th great grandson in New Hampshire. He owns an antique store and is really into genealogy. I am sending him a cheque.
