    $20 Spanish-American War 3% Coupon Bond of 1898

    $20 Spanish-American War 3% Coupon Bond of 1898 Hessler X188G.
    This is the smallest denomination for this patriotic coupon bond issue that was to provide ways and means to meet expenditures of the Spanish-American War. This bond is given Hessler's highest rarity rating of R8, a mere 1 to 3 known. This attractive example has its full complement of eighty 15 cent coupons. The bond has the folds of a Very Fine and in addition has been able to retain nice color on both sides. There is some edge wear that includes minor toning and a few scattered pinholes. These traits are very typical for bonds. In fact, tonight's bond is superior to the example that we sold in June 2010 for $3047. Overall, a great numismatic collectible from the war that propelled the United States into a global power.
