Is anyone here a member of the American Society of Check Collectors? I was a member for years, but since my main interest is Canadian, I let my membership lapse this year. They are a great group of people though and I'd recommend the organization to anyone interested in cheque collecting.

Chequer:

What sort of cheques are you looking for? I see a few in my travels, mostly RBC from the 1930's.

Hi David,
I am actively looking for pre-1900 cheques mainly. 1900 and up are very common, especially after 1920. Nova Scotia related and broken banks are at the top of my list. Cheque collecting is nowhere near as big in Canada as it is in the US or UK, although I know of many hoarding them. Because of this, unfortunately, most dealers don't have a clue as to what kind of value to assign them. Using your example, RBC cheques from the 1930s in fine+ condition may sell for 25 to 50 cents each, depending upon how long the dealer wants to hold onto them.

David, I moved recently and was unpacking some stuff today and came across packaging from some cheques I bought at a show. They were 1930s RBC cheques and the dealer had written 25cents each or 5 for a dollar. Talk about coincidence

Chequer:

Most of the cheques I see are post-1925; but I will keep an eye out for pre-1900 for you.

I would enjoy getting into US bank cheque collecting, especially for Illinois with revenue imprinted paper or any that relate to Abraham Lincoln.

Thanks David.

I do think you would enjoy it Josh ... you may wish to check out the ASCC site, they may have something pertaining to Illinois there. I'm certain you would find out more as a member with their quarterly publication.

Chequer,
I checked out the ASCC site and there wasn't very much info on annual dues & other resources. It does mention the quarterly publication and shows a dozen or so examples of bank checks.
