Selected Articles

The Check Collector is our quarterly magazine. It has existed under this name since May of 1987.
The magazine was originally printed from negatives created by photography of pasteboards until the October – December 1997 issue, when it was transmitted to the printer electronically. The illustrations in issues prior to the last issue of 1997 are of variable quality. The reprints of pre-1988 articles offered here were done from current scans of the material in order to present significantly improved versions of the originals, in color.
