Click on an image to enlarge
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 $50 denomination. It is the style that has the likeness of Thomas Bragg at the top of the bond. He served as Confederate Attorney General in the Confederate Government. He also served as Governor of North Carolina and was the older brother of Confederate General Braxton Bragg. This one has three of the original interest coupons on 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. One thing that is cool about this bond is the stamp on the reverse. After the Confederacy fell to the Union and the war was over, there were still thousands of dollars of Confederate bonds in banks and private hands. The bonds still had to be accounted for. This stamp shows that this one was in being accounted for in 1887. This is a very interesting thing to point out to your friends when you who them the bond. This is the Confederate bond listed as CR-52 in the Criswell bond book and as B40 in Ball's Bond Book. They state that there were only 831 of these issued and this one is hand numbered "681" in ink. This is a very attractive original Confederate states savings bond.
