2009.031 - Check, Bank

Copy of check from the city of Anacortes to the Kiwanis club for the purchase of property on Mt. Erie, in the amount of $1.00, dated September 30, 1951. Donor says Ellsworth Olson, President of Kiwanis in 1951, asked her to keep this check safe. It was in her baby book from 1951 to 2009. Even though Kaaren Malson (donor) claims this is an original check, it appears to merely be a copy. The dollar amount stamped onto the check does not show as a relief stamp on the back of the check. The edges are not serrated even though they can be seen in the copy. The fibers on the original check would be uniform across the original check but they appear darker in places as they would with a photoco
