Summary:     The series consists of copies of warrants issued by the Comptroller's Office from 1845 to 1882.  The warrant process originated with a claim for a specific amount made by an individual, agency, or company upon the State.  The claim, made in the form of a voucher, had to be examined and audited by the Comptroller.  If the claim was allowed, the Comptroller's warrant passed from the Comptroller's Office to the State Treasurer.
    The series also contains two boxes of cancelled warrants and certificates from 1861-1870 which were received by the Comptroller in exchange for engraved Comptroller warrants known as "greenback scrip."
