A Seattle record store made quite the find while going through a box of old records – an uncashed royalty check made out to Kurt Cobain – for a whopping $26.57.

The check was dated March 6th, 1991 – just six months before Nirvana broke into the big time with Nevermind.

Matt Vaughan, owner of Easy Street Records, shared a photo of the yellowed check to Instagram, commenting “We’re guessing the next royalty checks were a bit larger”.

Do you remember how much your first paycheck was for?
