    Replacement $1,000 1795 Bond

    $1,000 Treasury of the United States Register's Office July 28, 1795 (1796) 5 1/2% Bond Hessler X55 Replacement.
    A bond issue created from an act by the First Congress of the United States that made further provisions for the support of public credit and also for the redemption of the public debt. It is signed by Joseph Nourse, who during the Revolutionary War was the military secretary for General Charles Lee. Nourse became the first Register of the Treasury in 1781. He served 48 years in that capacity until he was removed from office by President Andrew Jackson in 1829. Robert Henry Dunkin's notary public seal for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania is at lower left. Interestingly, this partially printed bond is actually a replacement and thus the wording of the bond at top (Hessler X55) is followed by Dunkin's notary public statement. A similar replacement is plated on page 62 of An Illustrated History of U.S. Loans 1775-1898 by Gene Hessler. This example has been encapsulated, but not graded by PMG.
