Billhead receipts and Invoices were commonly used in business transactions from 1840's to 1960's. They can be found in today's transactions but they are less common. Many billheads were illustrated with fancy engravings and listed the company's name , address, various information and very often handwritten notes. Today they are considered vintage ephemera and are very collectible. In many cases a relative or ancestor may have owned the business or signed the document. Billheads are similar to today's letterheads except that they often make statements about the companies whose names are on the documents.
