Click on an image to enlarge

This is a very fine original Confederate States of America savings bond. This is the style issued under the act of the Confederate Congress of August 19th 1863 in the $500 denomination. In the center of the top it has the likeness of Confederate Vice-President Alexander Stephens (1812-1883). Before the Civil War Stephens was a lawyer from ' Georgia. He served the entire Civil War as the Vice-President of the Confederacy. After the Civil War he was elected as Governor of Georgia in 1882. The view shows the vice-president in his usual "strictly business" manner. It still has 26 of the original interest coupons present at the bottom. At certain dates the coupons could be cashed in to receive your interest from the bond. The bond is correctly hand signed and numbered in fine old brown ink. 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 over seas. The bonds still had to be accounted for overseas. This stamp shows that this one was accounted for in 1881. This is the style listed as CR-70 in the Confederate bond book by Criswell and as #113 in Ball's book on Confederate Bonds. Nice addition for any collection and will look beautiful when you frame it up for your wall. It measures approximately 15 inches by 14 inches in overall size.
