2017 ORS 73.0113¹
Date of instrument

(1) An instrument may be antedated or postdated. The date stated determines the time of payment if the instrument is payable at a fixed period after the date. Except as provided in ORS 74.4010 (When bank may charge customer’s account) (3), an instrument payable on demand is not payable before the date of the instrument.

(2) If an instrument is undated, its date is the date of its issue or, in the case of an unissued instrument, the date it first comes into possession of a holder. [1993 c.545 §16]
