I have a US Government (US Fuel Administration) check dated 1919 uncashed and made out to my Great Uncle.  Wondering about it's value.  Hopefuly more than $1.

You have a nice collectible there.  Unusual to have a check - you commonly see stamps (not real common - but you don't see checks).

The purpose was to regulate coal during the war and insure that the military got what they needed and then civilians could get it at a monitored rate.

(These are also the Bozos that created Daylight Savings Time - they ruined my great hiding places when we played hide-n-seek at night as a kid - because at 8pm when it was light it was harder to hide!  Smiley  )

Can you please post a picture.

Most likely a reimbursement check.  Was he employed by them?
