Civil War Union Army Payroll Checks

Posted in Interesting Items  by Steven on February 9th, 2011

An interesting item I’ve received is this sheet of uncut Civil War Union Army payroll checks. Printed in dark green on buff paper, there are no folds or tears- this item is in pristine condition. (Click image for full size.)

This would look marvelous matted and framed, suitable for numismatists as well as Civil War collectors.

Blogging Historic Auction Listings

Posted in Interesting Items  by Steven on January 16th, 2009

As you can see below, I am making an effort to post the auction listings of interesting items that I have had consigned. I hope that you find this interesting and educational, even if you don’t bid (but why wouldn’t you, on such interesting stuff?) 😉

Exploring Alternatives

Posted in Shop Talk  by Steven on December 29th, 2008

We’ve heard loud and clear from our high-end collectors- you do not like being forced to use PayPal, even when using a credit or debit card.  I am looking into alternatives that will move us away from eBay in stages, the main problem being the exposure needed to generate traffic for auctions. We may start off with smaller, fixed-price items such as postal covers, until we can find an ecommerce solution in an auction setting that allows us to take credit cards and money orders.

If anyone has a suggestion, post in the comments!
