(Click the pic for a bigger image)
Thomas Cook first began to use Travellers Cheques in the 1920's. The £5 Specimen is the type most frequently seen and is your best opportunity to acquire an early Traveller's Cheque.
It is not always recognised that there are two different types:
Type 1. With "(Bankers) Ltd" below title, signature block consisting of the printed name"Thos. Cook & Son (Bankers) Ltd" and perforated with "Cancelled" .
Type 2. Without "Bankers" below title, with signature block consisting of facsimilie signature "Thos. Cook & Son" and without perforations.
When cashed these Travellers Cheques were signed on the back and there is a printed endorsement on the back for this. The back is the same for both types.
We have just one example of each type to offer:
