Description

    Ball 156 Cr. 116 £100 1863 Bond Very Fine.
    This is one of the fabled bonds of the Confederacy, as it was floated overseas in London and the Continent with the backing of the Erlanger financial empire. The text is in both English and French. These cotton bonds are very popular with collectors, and this is an example of the lowest denomination issued. In the 1960s, a relative of the Erlanger family burned the remaining bonds in the family's possession, thus adding greatly to their scarcity. This bond is missing only four of 40 coupons. It is also in nice condition and is signed by Baron Emile Erlanger. An embossed British revenue stamp is at top center.
