Boston CLinton & Fitchburg! YAY!


So this is what happened to it:


Quote:
The Boston, Clinton, Fitchburg and New Bedford Railroad was consolidated outright into the Old Colony (Railroad) on March 5, 1883...the line would later become part of the New York, New Haven and Hartford network in 1893 with its lease of the entire Old Colony system.

Ok, I need to decide if I should complain that those are mostly STOCKS, and NOT checks... BUT they are SOOOOO darn cool, I think I won't mention it.

So back to the original topic (checks) -- I picked up a beauty today for less than $10. The locomotive on this one is terrific!

These are stamp collectors, Les. You may need to explain radar.

Radar notes, in currency collecting, are when the serial number reads the same backwards as forwards.

Here's a promissory note issued in 1851, but I suspect the train engraving was done about a decade earlier.
