RN-X7 Revenue Imprint on “hand-written” check, 1902, Boonton, NJ
This check, although it appears hand-written, is mostly a printed product. C. A. DeCamp and his business is acknowledged at the far left, and Mr. DeCamp’s signature appears at the lower right. Mr. DeCamp appears to have been an early naturalist and conservationist in Morris County, New Jersey. Land that he preserved and on which he created access roads for hikers in the mid to late 1800s is today a park known as The Tourne. From his activity on his land it is clear why he might have been in the businesses of real estate and forestry. Though why he produced manuscript printed checks is a mystery that is likely to remain unsolved.
