    Jefferson City, MO- State of Missouri (Union Military Bond) $3 Aug. 27, 1863 Cr. UG12 PMG Choice Very Fine 35 EPQ.
    These bonds were authorized on March 9, 1863 to pay the Missouri Militia and were payable twelve months after issue, bearing 6% interest. They were receivable for up to half of the state taxes due for 1864 and by 1867 were being withdrawn and redeemed. The portrait used on this denomination is that of Benjamin Gratz Brown who was instrumental in keeping Missouri in the Union in 1861 and who served in the United States Senate from 1863-67. A large round frame surrounds a large female portrait at center. The state seal appears in the lower right corner. As other denominations in this series, this note also has a very ornate green back design. This note has an endorsement on the back. Unlike their counterpart notes issued by the secessionist state government, the vast majority of these were redeemed and are all quite rare today.
