    Jefferson City, MO- Union Military Bond $1 Sep. 20, 1865 Cr. UG21 PMG Very Fine 30.
    Unlike the secessionist state issues, those of the unionist state government are quite rare. Their purpose was quite similar- to pay the state militia (in this case, fighting for the union). $3 million dollars paying 6% interest was issued from the first series with subsequent authorizations totaling up to an additional $3.4 million dollars. Virtually all were redeemed by 1874. This $1 features a portrait of William S. Moseley who was virtually the only state official to remain in Jefferson City when the city was occupied by Union forces in May,1861. At right, America sits by an eagle and globe. Printed by ABNCo, the note has a very ornate green back. Shull estimated a surviving population of 2-4 examples in 2007. While that number has grown a bit over the last fourteen years, the needle has not moved much- we are aware of six examples today based on serial numbers observed.
