    Description

    Ball 160 Cr. 119 £1000 1863 Bond Fine-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. These cotton bonds are very popular with collectors and this is an example of the highest denomination issued. 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. This nice bond is missing only four of 40 coupons and it is signed by Baron Emile Erlanger.
