: Where did "Cut a Check" originate?

I checked the archives, and we had the question come up a few years ago, but all we managed was a guess (maybe without perforations, checks were once cut apart?) I also consulted dictionary.com, and in a long list of definitions, there's reference to cutting a check, or any appropriate equivalent definition. A mystery, yes? I'll keep looking, after some morining coffee....
