I acquired this at a local auction in Kentucky and have spent the last 4 hours trying to find out anything I could about it. It has a R164 2 cent documentary with a battleship on it. I did find out what it was and what they were used for. The check looks to be written out to Lindsay State (the last word I cannot make out - I think it says Border). The check is for $394.35 which would (using an inflation calculator) be $11,895.29 today. The date the check is written is October 7th, 1900 and was paid by the bank (stamped on) on October 16th, 1900. The bank stamp says the date along with Lindsay State Bank and Lindsay, Neb. I cannot make out the name on the check.It looks like an initial for the first name - maybe an A and maybe Hunsin as the last name. A pic of the check can be seen: http://i43.photobucket.com/albums/e353/russnk...
Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks a million in advance.

Found out more information. The check looks to be signed A Hansen which would have been Andrew Hansen - the vice president of the bank at that time. Would be great to try and find a family member to see if they would be interested in having this little piece of history.

I am the webmaster for the town of Lindsay's website.
The current bank's picture and contact information is on http://www.megavision.net/lindsay/Businesses....
A historic picture of the bank is on the bottom left of http://www.megavision.net/lindsay/historypara... and probably would be how the bank looked when this check was written.
This document appears 'real' to me.

Ok, looks like the topix people reviewed my first post with links, so you can go directly to our town's web site now.
I emailed the scan of your document to our contact at the bank already. Her name is in the direct email I sent. Please keep her name private.

I am a direct descendant of Andrew Hansen and would like to discuss acquiring the check. Email me at [email protected] Thanks.
