Editorial Reviews


"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
