    Santa Anna Signed Bond Issued from New York City

    Issued in United States of America $500 Bond. Extremely Fine-About Uncirculated.
    Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna, (1794-1876), Mexican General, Revolutionist, President and Dictator. Santa Anna boldly signs this extremely graphic bond. It is without doubt the most impressive and ornate of all autographed stocks or bonds. This $500 bond was issued in 1866 from New York City while Santa Anna was living in exile. While he schemed to depose Emperor Maximilian, he issued these bonds in hopes of regaining power. In these attempts, he was captured and sentenced to death. Still, he was released and allowed to retire to New York where he eventually went blind and died in poverty and neglect. Of course, we remember him because of his success over the Texans at the Alamo, and later his defeat and capture by Sam Houston at San Jacinto in 1836. Found in an old leather container in Texas, this American bond is fully issued, uncancelled, and full margins. Pinholes or staple holes are noted outside the design. Two of the three folds are in the margins of the piece and also do not affect the design. A true classic and a must for any serious collection, but especially collectors of Texas history.
