Thank you very much for this nice “vintage” check. I like the colors very much as well as the special design.
What I would like to know is right because of my curiosity … is this check a real one? Sorry to ask but usually these checks are handwritten and not typed. Also, the shorted form of “September” is more a new style with a shortened form …
As I said, I liked the view of this check very much … Thanks a lot.

Yes, this is a scan of a real check from my personal collection of vintage ephemera. Sometimes you can find others from the same company and time frame with the typing. I did a quick online search and there is currently one for sale here: https://www.hippostcard.com/listing/california-nevada-creamery-co-check-1893-carson-city/1268816
I’m happy to know you like it!
