Steamships have long been a favorite theme of mine. Whether they be on stamps, stocks/bonds,, checks, or just engravings, steamships are hard for me to pass up when they come up for sale. Below are a couple I got at prices that I consider quite reasonable, probably because the checks themselves are a little less than pristine.
The one from the First Nat'l Bank of Green Bay is a particularly interesting one, as this check was issued with the same steamboat vignette but in a variety of paper colors.
I'd really like to see any checks or stocks (or anything!) that you've got with steamships on them!
