We're a US company. We got a check from a Canadian company and usually the check will say "USD" on it. Otherwise when we deposit it, the check will clear as CAD.
This check has no indicators on it. Just the amount written as "$100".
Is there something visible on the check (a code in the numbers) that determines what currency the check is written in? How can I tell before I deposit it whether the check is USD or CAD? (Even though the company's address is Canada, the Bank Name on the check says Bank of America)
Or is this just determined by the currency of the account that wrote the check which isn't knowable until it tries to clear via the banks?
