StamperDude,

Are you collecting just IL checks, checks with an RN revenue or any check? I have several duplicate checks with an RN revenue if you're interested.

I am primarily interested in IL checks, with or without revenues. However, if I can tie a check to any Route 66 community that would be a bonus regardless of state.

Here are a couple Illinois checks from my collection. Dickinson Leach was a distillery in Chicago -- it's interesting to see a diagram of a still on their check. The other is from Rushville. Not sure where that is but the vignettes are very attractive. Dickinson was engraved by Western Bank Note Co.; Rushville by Continental Bank Note.

I'm sure I have some Illinois stocks and bonds as well, but it may take some time to dig them out.

This thread has been dormant for a while, but I nonetheless wanted to show a couple of items I found in my relatively tiny 19th Century revenue-related check collection. I especially like the one that shows various University of Illinois campus buildings.

Interesting to note the first example from Petefish, Skiles & Co., was named after Samuel H. Petefish and Ignatius Skiles. The banking firm is still in operation today and (remarkably) they still use the same typeface in their name as they did in 1898!

As for the second example, can someone explain the second check, which seems to have an "imprinted" two cent IR documentary stamp in the center, rather than having the stamp added thereafter? Was this an acceptable practice? It seems as though it would have been quite expensive to print checks with the documentary stamp included in the printing process.

wt1, revenue stamped paper is a whole sub-species of U.S. revenues. Scott gives them "RN" numbers -- this one is, I believe, RN-X7. You can see many other examples in the Back of the Book forum, this forum, and even this thread. They were generally in use during the Civil War era until the early 1880s and then were briefly re-instituted at the time of the Spanish-American War. Here are some other examples that I happen to have scanned:
