Plain Dealer in Cleveland reports that 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.
Some are being displayed at branches
throughout the state.
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. An employee had begun
looking through old boxes last year, which
led to the discovery of the checks.
