It?s common here in our rural area to have a sign that says no ch?ques, no bills over 20$ and 5% will be added to credit card purchases.

We used to carry a pad of them in wrecker for when someone had no cash or not enough, we would verify their name and have the fill out and sign one. They would return later to shop and pay bill and pick up the counter check they signed, didn't matter to us if they had anything in that bank or not!

When I started my checking & savings acct at the small farm back in our little town of 100 people in the late 1960's, well, maybe 105 people, The tellers told me to use counter checks, and don't put my name anywhere on my check book. If I lost my checkbook whoever found it knew how much money I had but no idea who I was, checkbook was worthless to them.

By the mid/late 1970's the grocery store wife and I had bought groceries at every week for 2+ years refused to take one of our counter checks. Embarassed the heck out of my Wife. We started buying groceries at a new grocery store and got printed checks ASAP AND the check card from the grocery store.

Only times I've ever had problems making checks I've written good is when I had paychecks bounce. I worked three weeks for a millwright company one winter, first paycheck was O-K, second check I thought was O-K, third week they paid us in cash. The day before the deadline to file suit for back wages I got the second check back from my bank, insufficient funds. I filed a claim and waited THREE years for my money. Then one dipstick I drove for about 1-1/2 years wrote me a rubber check. Last time I heard anything about him my buddy who was a Sherriff's Deputy walked him from the jail to the Court House in handcuffs to appear in court for writting bad checks. He spent several years in jail.

That"s from putting too much money in the bank- LOL. I haven"t seen counter checks for 40 years. Generic deposit slips are still available here.

In the mid 60's I worked in a retail lumber yard, town of less than 1000, had all kinds of counter checks for all banks in surrounding area, also had a pad of them that didn't have a bank name on you just wrote in your banks name.
Simple times.

Honest to God,believe me or not,I don't remember ever running out of deposit slips before I ran out of checks when I was milking cows. Three months after the dairy cattle went was the first time it happened. It's happened quite often since.

My local IGA store had them until about 20-25 years ago.
