    Description

    Ball 156 Cr. 116 £100/2500 Francs/4000 lbs. Cotton 1863 Bond Very Fine.
    One of the fabled bond issues of the Confederacy as it was floated overseas in London and the Continent with the backing of the Erlanger financial empire. In the 1960s a relative of the Erlanger family burned the remaining bonds in the family's possession thinking that they were worthless paper, thus greatly enhancing the scarcity of the few survivors. The Erlanger bonds are signed by banker Baron Emile Erlanger and Confederate diplomat John Slidell. The usual count of 36 coupons remain attached. There is some edge wear seen and pinholes, but this is otherwise a nice piece. These tend to sell for several hundred dollars in this state.
