This is a very tough piece to find! It is an original Civil War Confederate savings bond from the state of Tennessee. Across the top f the golden color paper it boldly reads "STATE OF TENNESSEE”. It has the beautiful capitol building of the state of Tennessee in the middle. On each of the corners at the top it has the "$1000” denomination marking. Down at the bottom it states that it was approved by the Governor Isham G. Harris. If you note the date it states that it was June 1st 1862 which is after Nashville had already been evacuated and fallen into Union hands. Just a couple of months before this Isham Harris would be fighting at the Battle of Shiloh and was one of the first to find Confederate Albert Sidney Johnston was dead. Governor Harris personally signed the bond in fine ink at the bottom. The bond retains 15 of the interest coupons and the last one could have been redeemed on June 1st 1864. The overall size of the piece in the frame measures 16 inches by 18 inches. This is a scarce piece that displays superbly and will make a fine addition to any collection.
