Click on an image to enlarge
This is a great piece! It is an original Civil War savings bond form the state of Louisiana. This is the $1000 bond that was issued under the Confederate Government of the state of Louisiana in 1863. It has one of the greatest wordings you will find on a Confederate issued bond. It states that they are raising the money for " the purpose of arming and equipping the Volunteers and Militia, for the defense of the State and to Repel invasion." How great is that' At the top and bottom of the main section of the bond it has the great seal of the state of Louisiana that depicts the mother pelican feeding her young. One thing that is special about this one is that it was issued in Shreveport and they marked out the Baton Rouge location. It was printed for 1862 issuance but this one has the written in 1863 issue date. This one still has several of the original interest coupons intact around the sides. It is correctly hand signed and number in fine old brown ink. It is serial number "3596" at the top and on each coupon. There is one small repair on the back of the paper that won't show up when it is framed. This is a fantastic piece of Confederate history from the Pelican State!
