Confederate War Bond

Partly-printed DS, one page, 17 x 28, March 1, 1864. Ornately engraved uncancelled Confederate States of America bond in the amount of $1000, number 2095, sixth series, as authorized by a February 17th Act of the Confederate Congress. The bond was to yield six-percent annual interest, reaching maturity on July 1, 1894, and bottom of the document retains 59 of the 60 original interest-bearing coupons as issued—the first was always clipped upon issue. Cloth-matted and framed to an overall size of 26.5 x 36.5. Intersecting folds, a few small edge tears, and expected document wear, otherwise fine condition. With the head of the pink-hued document featuring the Confederate Seal—with a distinguished image of George Washington on horseback—this is considered one of the most attractive Confederate bonds. Oversized. RR Auction COA.
