About this Item

Printed check, 6" X 2½", Philadelphia, PA, n.y. [ca. 1810]. Fine. Boldly printed in black on high-quality laid paper, this blank check was issued by this Philly institution founded in 1809. In the early part of the 19th century a number of lending institutions arose to serve the needs of various trades. At top center a steel-engraved decorative scroll surrounds an oval image containing farming and foundry implements (visible are a plow, wheat shafts, iron working tools) and standard text with blanks to be filled in: "Philadelphia, [blank] 181[blank]," "PAY to [blank] or Bearer," and so on. Decorative border at left and top margins. A lovely relic of this early Philadelphia blank printed during its earliest years. Bookseller Inventory # 39555
