Next is a July 10,1883 a CERTIFICATE OF DEPOSITE Slip for $500.00. Has 2 vignette with a woman riding a deer in a flowing gown and the other is a woman with bonnet and holding what appears to be flowers in one hand and a scythe in the other hand.

This check has a raised seal on it that says THE HIGGANUM MANUFACTURING CORPORATION around the edge and in the center says ORGANIZED 1877. Also has perfect vignette with a man, a horse,2 sheep, 2 cows, a calf and a pig. Due to the Quill Pen and India Ink used in those days it`s hard for me to tell who some of the signatures are from. The script is just stunning especially when compared to todays penmanship. All have endorsements on back.
The Personal Check and the Pratt & Whitney checks have a 2 cent Inter-Rev Stamp imprinted and The Higganum Manufacturing Check has the blue 2 cent Inter-Rev Stamp attached.
These checks are drawn on or from the Deep River National Bank which was located in the Town of Deep River, Connecticut. These checks are in original condition and were discovered in a sealed box in a crawl space in an old bank building several years ago and since have had very little exposure to artificial light and no exposure to sunlight. These vintage documents will make a great addition to anyone who favors such items. These checks were sealed up for over a hundred years before discovery. Light spot on top check is just that a light spot and is not a defect on the check. All checks are in original condition.
