These two have to be my favorites. I really like the early engravings. So much going on!

Don't know if this is a check or not - from the writing on the back seems to be from 1881

Well, I know I've posted this before but I've learned about the machine pictured on the check. Did some research on Wickes Brothers on the http://www.vintagemachinery.org site. Here's what the historian had to say:

Quote:

That is a lovely cheque!

The machine pictured is a gang sawmill. The picture is hard to understand because the bottom of the machine—where the man is standing—would be one storey below the saw carriage, which isn't shown. At the top of the machine is a frame containing a set of a dozen or so vertical sawblades. A cant, which is a squared-off saw log, is fed into the blades between the two horizontal rollers, reducing the cant into a bunch of boards. This type of saw was used mainly for making boards for flooring and siding.

I just picked this one up this week and I have to say, it's one of my new favorites. An 1868 check from the U.S. Assistant Treasurer in New York. I like the color and the vignette of Miss Liberty is a classic.

The vignette is Columbia, not Liberty.
