Editorial Reviews

Review

"This enlightening and entertaining book is of great value to anyone with more than a cursory interest in money or finance."

Winner of the George W. Wait Memorial Prize, Society of Paper Money Collectors --Fred Reed, editor, Paper Money

I am a collector of old checks- a fascinating hobby once you get into it. The checks of the 1800's were works of art and pieces of history. It's a great hobby and at this time the prices are still reasonable. This book is a handy thing to get you started. --Robert Harris

This book was great. I thought it was informative and interesting. I've been collecting autographs and checks in a rather haphazard way for many years depending on what I happened to come across. Now that I understand the history of checks more fully and the desirable qualities of collectible checks, I hope to make more intelligent purchases in the future. --Jim Boyce

Format: Paperback
This book is an eye opener for anyone who wants to learn about check writing and why checks have become a valuable collectible commodity. It's exceptionally well-written and organized in a logical sequence.

It's a comprehensive guide that details the fascinating history of checks, the changes in technology applied to checks, stamps applied to checks, and the attraction of beautiful designs. The checks are divided into many collecting categories that includes an enlightening chapter on checks autographed by the rich and famous.

Importantly, this book reveals sources for collecting valuable checks, valuation of checks, and how to sell collectible checks. A list of resources in the back of the book is invaluable for both novice and seasoned collectors. This book is destined to be a landmark contribution in the category of collectible financial documents. A definite must-have if you are a check collector.

It's hard to find much about check collecting, which is becoming more and more popular as checks become scarcer. Or at least it was hard until this book. It does a great job explaining the history of checks and banking as well as the ins and outs of collecting checks of historic interest. Love seeing the images of valuable checks, like the one that John Lennon wrote to Apple Records.
