    Choice 1865 Dated $1 Union Military Bond

    Jefferson City, MO - State of Missouri-Union Military Bond $1 June 1, 1865 Cr. UG21 PCGS Very Fine 35.
    There are three engraved dates used on this major Missouri state type. A scarce and very choice $1 Union Military Bond with an "1865" engraved date on the face and the enactment date of Feb. 20, 1865 on the back. A similar layout was used for the different dates by the American Bank Note Co. The face layout shows William S. Mosely at the upper left and a representation of America as a Native American princess, with an eagle and globe, at the right center. On the green back, the enactment date is along the bottom and large dies are at the ends. Endorsed on the back margin and vertically across the center. Considered "Extremely Rare" or Rarity-11 (2-4 known) in Shull-Criswell. Although a few have surfaced from collections in the past few years, this is a very well-margined, choice example. An exceptional pedigree from the Eric P. Newman Collection and the finest of the date we have seen. Perfect type representative for the issue. Bright and bold.
