PHOTO – A check was just discovered that was signed by Abraham Lincoln the day before he was assassinated


A personal check that Abraham Lincoln wrote the day before he was assassinated was recently rediscovered by an Ohio bank. About 70 checks were found in a vault at Huntington Bank’s Columbus headquarters, including checks signed by George Washington, Mark Twain, Charles Dickens and Thomas Edison. The Lincoln check had been made out to ‘self’ for $800. The checks had been stored in a vault since at least 1983, when Huntington took over another bank, the Associated Press reports. An employee had begun looking through old boxes last year, which led to the discovery of the checks. The Lincoln check is worth about $25,000 today, while one written by George Washington to William Thornton for $500 is valued at $10,000. – Dailymail
