$225.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 976-14

Confederate bonds are a nice combination of art and history. The aspiring new nation was dependent upon economic power as well as military. The two were naturally intertwined and equally complicated. This thousand dollar bond was part of the Confederate treasury’s February 17, 1864, issue and promised to pay six percent to the investor in sixty payments of thirty dollars each over the life of the loan starting on January 1, 1865. This is a scarce example with all sixty coupons in place. These have often been damaged by handling over the years, since the full bond is large, or the first coupon at lower right, payable on January 1865, has been clipped.

The bond central motif of the bond is an equestrian statue at top with the figures of Justice and Liberty in smaller cartouches on each side. The bond is serial numbered at top left by hand and bears the signatures of the Confederate issuing officers. The coupons, like the bond, carry the printed name of the engraver, Archer of Richmond, and each bear the signature of Robert Tyler, son of former President John Tyler and the Confederate Registrar of the Treasury.

The condition of the bond is excellent, with little foxing and a pleasant muted pink tone. It is beautifully mounted in a gilt edged archival mat, backed with archival acid-free materials, and framed with ultraviolet light resistant plastic.   [sl]
