NEAT! 1862 C.S. Bond With "Unknown Man" Image Serial Number 21
Click on an image to enlarge
This Confederate bond has a neat trait. This is an 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 $50 denomination. It is the style that has the image of a man in the center of the top. What makes it interesting is that we do not know who this man was. How odd is that? It seems like we would easily know but nope! We don't' know. In the center of the bond top portion it has the image of a guard dog sleeping beside the treasury safes. This one has the correct number of 30 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. It is correctly hand signed and numbered by the Confederate Government officials in fine brown ink. One neat thing about this bond is that it is serial numbered "21". When do you ever get a chance at a bond with a serial number that low? This one is signed by the register of the Confederate Treasury Robert Tyler. Tyler was the son of the 10th President of the United States John Tyler. This always makes a neat thing to point out when you show the bond to your friends. This is the Confederate bond listed as CR-21 in the bond book by Criswell and #132 in Ball's Confederate Bond book. This is a very attractive original Confederate states savings bond of the "Unknown Man".
