This approximately 12 ½” x 14” Confederate States of America $500 bond (FP1371) is dated March 2nd, 1863. Noted as an 8% Coupon Bond, it has the bust of C. G. Memminger in the upper center, and a cotton plant in the lower center. Four coupons remain attached to the bottom of the bond. In overall fairly good condition (I’d rank it at a 6-7), and in spite of folds, a 1 ½” tear along one of the folds, and a few small holes, the bond would display nicely if framed and flattened behind glass.
