This is a document that basically is an old fashioned credit card. The letter of credit could be good for an entire area as with a kings letter, or it could be good only with a specific merchant, or city. Being caught with a counterfeit or false letter of credit is punishable in some areas with death. And it usually is immediate and on the spot.

However when legitimate, these documents will have special seals on them and can be powerful documents.
