This is a nice and 100% authentic 1862 dated Confederate States of America savings bond. This is the style issued under the act of the Confederate Congress on August 19th 1861 in the $500 denomination. It is the style that has the likeness of Confederate General Robert Augustus Toombs (1810 - 1885). Toombs was born in Wilkes County, Georgia on July 2nd 1810. He entered the law and became wealthy in land and slaves. He served in state politics from Georgia and served in the U.S. Congress. He was almost chosen as the Confederate President. He was in the Confederate Congress when he was appointed the rank of Brigadier General. He resigned on March 4th 1863 after his promotion wasn't approved. He saw some service again during Sherman's Georgia Campaign. He left the country at the end of the War but returned in 1867. He never applied for a pardon so he never regained citizenship, which means he never was allowed to hold office again. Toombs died in Washington, Georgia on December 15th 1885 and is buried there. This one has all 6 of the original coupons attached at the bottom. When the date arrived that is printed on the bottom of the coupon you could cash it in for your interest payment. At the bottom edge of the top portion you can see the printer's mark from the firm of B. Duncan of Columbia, South Carolina. It is correctly hand signed and numbered by the Confederate Government officials in fine brown ink with the hand written date of January 6th 1863. This is the Confederate bond listed as Type 108 in the Ball Confederate bond book and as CR-69 in the Criswell Bond Book. This is a very attractive original Confederate states savings bond.
