Description

    Ball 160 Cr. 119 £1000 1863 Bond Fine-Very Fine. This is 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. These cotton bonds are very popular with collectors and this is an example of the highest denomination issued. The printer started with the £1000 bond denomination, thus the Series A designation. In the 1960s a relative of the Erlanger family burned the remaining bonds in the family's possession thinking they were worthless paper, thus enhancing greatly their scarcity. All of these bonds were signed by Baron Emile Erlanger. This example shows some aging in the middle third section and along the top border. Small amounts of paper separation are noticed along the folds and coupon 11 has an approximate one and a half inch tear. There are also many pinholes. This is still a highly collectible bond that is very elusive.
