Lot 378: Partly-printed DS, one page, 16 x 27.5, March 1, 1864. Ornately engraved uncancelled Confederate States of America bond in the amount of $1000, number 738, first series, as authorized by a February 17th Act of the Confederate Congress. The bond was to yield six-percent annual interest, reaching maturity on July 1, 1894, and bottom of the document retains 59 of the 60 original interest-bearing coupons as issued—the first was always clipped upon issue. In fine condition, with central vertical and horizontal folds and expected document wear. Considered one of the most attractive Confederate bonds, the vignette at the head of the pink-hued document features the Confederate Seal, which contains an image of George Washington on horseback.
