    Loans of July and August 1861 $10,000 Registered Bond 18__ Hessler X128F Face Proof and Back Proofs.
    A beautiful black and white Face Proof and a dark red text Back Proof are in this lot. This is a rare bond with an R8 rarity rating, 1 to 3 known, in the Hessler reference. Both Proofs were printed by the National Bank Note Co. The Face Proof has an excellent portrait of President Lincoln that was engraved by Henry Gugler. This is the first example of this bond that we have auctioned and our consignor acquired it from the John J. Ford, Jr. Collection. This bond had a 20 year maturity and was also the highest denomination of the issue. The Face Proof has a stub at left and resides in a PCGS Extremely Fine 40 holder with tears and repairs and the upper left corner has been replaced. There are nine POC along the three signature lines. The Back Proof grades PCGS Choice New 63 with nine POC. (Total: 2 items)
