[Confederate Bond] $1000, SIX PER CENT, NON TAXABLE CERTIFICATE. . . .

Richmond: George Dunn, [1865]. Broadside. Item #8456

Broadside. 14" x 7.25." Remainder, never issued; back blank. Light wear and some toning to back. Two vertical creases to the left. Very good.

Bonds were a largely insufficient means to help the Confederate government fund the Civil War, but also to engage the populous who could with no small measure of patriotism, help the war effort with hopes of a modest return on investment. This late war bond has issue dates throughout March of 1865, just as the war was winding down and those bonds issued would be worthless. This remainder comports with Ball & Simmons B-367.

Price: $75.00
