With only a few exceptions, these checks uniformly measure 8-1/4 x 3-1/8" and are printed with the address, "Edwin Stephen Schweig / Patterson/D'Amato Fund (Account) / 51 Chambers Street, New York 7, N.Y." They hail from the first half of 1962 during training sessions for Patterson's heavyweight championship bout against Sonny Liston. Rating EX/EX-MT overall, the checks are signed by attorney Julius November, with one written out to Patterson, another to Cus D'Amato, and the rest received by various other figures and companies.
