1863 CSA Bond - passed down by family

5 posts in this topic

Today I aquired a framed 1863 CSA $1000 6% bond w/ 7 coupons attached out of 8. A distant family member on my mother's side must have used the first coupon (10/1/64) before things came to an end for the CSA in 1865. The bond is #2233 and signed by the Register for the Treasury and two others.



Can anyone tell me anything more about this? Grading? Value? Poor framing on the framer about 30 years ago - it looks like they mounted it in the four corners. I would like to get it out of the frame and in to some sort of sealed protection for years to come.

Thanks a bunch!


I need to check with PMG to see if they can seal it. The website says CSA notes -I guess that does not include bonds. It's worth a call even if doubtful - I just want to get the bond out of the frame. It's not something I want to put the wall.
