Okay, a real check this time and just love the old machinery; looks like a distilling system.
Oh, and it's a radar number -- 4884 another bonus!

The Basic City Mining, Manufacturing, and Land Company was organized and designed so that Basic City would become the “little Pittsburgh” of the Shenandoah Valley. Due to the many boom and bust cycles that occurred in the late 1800s and early 1900s, Basic City never became the success that it was designed to become. Early Basic City/Waynesboro sported many industries including a pencil factory, furniture manufacturers, an automotive plant, vinegar plant, stove factory, and supporting industry for the railroad – which boasted a major intersection of north/south and east/west lines.

Saw a neat Orville Wright check sell yesterday at an estate auction. Drawn on the City National Bank in Dayton, Ohio. Sold for $375.

One thing I would say is for sure after looking at all your great posts. The art of American's cursive script handwriting is pretty much lost forever!

I acquired a lovely Colorado territorial check today (issued a year before statehood). It was engraved by the National Bank Note Company and features a striking vignette entitled "Bear Fight."
