Local Ford Agency Blank Check

Post by J Sundstrom » Wed Nov 27, 2019 8:59 pm

Have a blank check from Ford Agency from town near me.
No Longer there but building remains. By the graphics from
the ‘23 to ‘25 era. Has anyone come across these type checks?

Nice find! I think I'd have to frame that one for the wall of the shop!

Not exactly the same, but when I first started using or getting checks they were what were called "Counter Checks". You just basically filled one in with the name of your Bank and etc., the Merchants and all had these blank checks on their counters to use, hence the name. Hard to imagine how honest and trusting it was back then. :(

Great find!
I agree it should be matted and framed.

Congratulations,

One thought on framing an item that has printing on both sides would be to use double glass. By that I mean is to build a frame with glass on both sides that way you can hang up the check and when it becomes a point of discussion you just have to lift it off the wall and show both sides without removing it from the frame.

Nice find by the way.

I found this set at a Model T swap meet a few years back. I have since seen some at other swap meets. A neat item for sure!

There are 4 of these checks on eBay right now for $4.99 Buy It Now plus $3.25 s/h.
It seems like a good deal to me.
