Archivally framed Confederate bearer bond issued during the war to finance the Southern cause. Bond measures 13 3/4” x 12 ¼”, frame measures 17” x 21”. The bond is held with Archival Hinge Tissue and rests on acid-free, PH buffered paper. The document is matted by acid-free, 100% rag mat boards.

This actual bond was sold to European investors after its issue in Richmond. At the end of the war, the Bank of England held all Confederate Bonds in their vaults in an effort to reclaim some of their worth from the US Government. The effort failed, and the bonds remained hidden in the vault in London for over 120 years. The bonds were unearthed in the late 1980s and sold via Sotheby Auctioneers to Heritage Rare Coin in Dallas. This particular bond was hand-picked by the previous owner directly from the large wooden casks from London the week they arrived at Heritage in 1988.
