Beautifully printed $50 certificate from the Confederate States of America dated May 1, 1861. This historic document was printed by Douglas, Engr. New Orleans and has an
ornate border around it with a vignette of Two women Columbia/Commerce on the left and Ceres/Agriculture on the right. It was issued under the Act of February 28, 1861. This certificate has been hand signed by Alexander Clitherall who was the CSA's First Register of the Treasury, and Henry Dickson Capers as Chief Clerk. There were only 4,700 of these bonds issued but it is unknown how many survived over the years. Folded and overall in Extra Fine Condition. 14 coupons attached. Montgomery Bonds have been very hard to find and are very desirable.
The bond was issued under the Act of 2/28/1861 by the Confederate Congress. Montgomery, Alabama served as the Confederate capital from February 4, 1861 to May 21, 1861, when the capital was moved to Richmond, Virginia. Montgomery was chosen as the Confederacy’s first capital because it was well positioned with good water and rail facilities and had a large number of hotel rooms. Also, it was thought to be safe from federal forces.
