This is an 1860s unused check from Manufacturers' National Bank of New York.
It has an #RN-B1 2c orange revenue stamp printed on it



and a engraved vignette of a woman waiting by a lighthouse and looking out to sea.

That is beautiful! Tell her she's looking in the wrong direction!
That would be gorgeous in a frame as an 8X10 or larger! So romantic!

Thanks for posting!

I was in the Air Force on a Naval Air base in the 70's I've heard some real humdingers.
