(from Ch. 121 1/2, par. 262X)
It is an unlawful practice for any person to promote or
advertise any business, product or interest in property by means of
distributing documents designed to simulate checks or other negotiable
instruments unless such
instrument has printed upon both its front and back, the following
statement: "This is not a Check".
However, it is not an unlawful practice under this Section for a person
to distribute for commercial purposes a sample or specimen of a check or
other instrument which is used to solicit orders for the sale of that
instrument and which is clearly marked as a non-negotiable sample or specimen.
