From the outset of the Civil War, the South faced great difficulties in keeping up with the financing of its war effort. Among the various financial instruments employed to raise funding were the offered Confederate States of America "Six Percent" bond and paper currency note.
This genuine Civil War relic was issued in accord with the "Act of March 23, 1863" in the amount of $1,000. Signed by Assistant Register of the Treasury Charles A. Rose and initialed by several parties, this official document remains in attractive (VF) condition, with distinct printing and writing on a crisp sheet that has (7) coupons attached at bottom. These coupons are dated throughout the 1860s for periodic redemption of interest payments. The name of the bond's engraver "Geo. Dunn & Co. of Richmond" is printed at the bottom left corner of the main section.
Also present is a Criswell T-67 X-Series 1864 $20 CSA bill (VF) with images of the Tennessee State Capitol Building at center and CSA Vice President Alexander H. Stephens at bottom right.
Representatives of a government that is long gone with the wind, these antique CSA relics are mounted on an 18 x 21-1/2" backer board, ready for framing.
