Civil War 1863 Confederate States $1000 Bond - Framed and Matted

During the height of the Civil War, both sides experienced severe financial strain. The Confederate States of America issued a series of bonds to help finance its continued fight against the Union. Among the most popular of the bonds issued are these $1000 bonds of February 20, 1863. These bonds feature vignettes of Confederate States President Jefferson Davis and the Capital of the Confederacy, Richmond, Virginia.
Engraved by Evans and Cogswell of Columbia, South Carolina, these $1000 Bonds were originally payable to the bearer at an 8% interest rate in semi-annual interest payments of $40 with the $1000 principal to be repaid on July 1, 1868. These impressive bonds come matted and generously framed in an antiqued silver finish with four of the original $40 interest coupons still attached. While these bonds became unredeemable when the Confederacy lost the War in 1865, they remain a beautiful and fascinating piece of history. These bonds measure approximately 10.5" x 13.5", while the overall framed dimensions measure approximately 22" x 26".
