United States Savings Bonds and Liberty Loan Bonds

 
Collectible U.S. Savings Bonds, Liberty Loan Bonds, War Bonds, Defense Bonds, Treasury Bonds

On February 1, 1935, President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed legislation that allowed the U.S. Department of the Treasury to sell a new type of security, thus the Savings Bond was born. One month later, the first Series A Savings Bond proceeded to be issued with a face value of $25. At first, the main purpose was help finance World War II, these were referred to as Defensive Bonds. On April 30, 1941 Roosevelt purchased the first bond from Treasury Secretary Henry Morgenthau. The next day, they were made available to the public. After the attack on Pearl Harbor, Defense Bonds were informally known as War Savings Bonds, citizens could buy the bonds for a dime. All the revenue coming in from the bonds, went directly to support the war. Even after the war ended, Savings Bonds became popular with families

Savings bonds are debt securities issued by the U.S. Department of the Treasury to help pay for the U.S. government’s borrowing needs. U.S. savings bonds are considered one of the safest investments because they are backed by the full faith and credit of the U.S. government

Series E U.S. Savings Bonds were promoted and marketed by the United States of America government as war bonds from 1941 to 1980. When Americans refer to war bonds, they are usually referring to Series E bonds. During WWII, Government Bond rallies were held throughout the country with famous motion picture celebrities to help promote the bonds and the war effort. Free movie days were held in theaters nationwide with a bond purchase as the admission. Disney certificates were issued as premiums to purchasers of U.S. WWII savings bonds

The physical size of the bond was reduced in 1944 to save paper and money. Towards the end of the war, the bonds were renamed Victory Bonds. History from SavingsBonds.pro.

Liberty Bonds were first utilized during the first World War to support the allied cause in World War I. Subscribing to the bonds became a symbol of patriotic duty in the United States and introduced the idea of financial securities to many citizens for the first time. This allowed private citizens to purchase a bond to help support the military effort. After the war, the bond could be redeemed for its purchase price plus interest.

A Liberty Bond will have a maturation date somewhere on the front on the bond. A maturation date is the earliest someone can redeem the value plus interest. Liberty Bonds from WWI do not continue to earn interest. The redemption value is usually the face value of the bond plus any unused coupons attached to the bond.

There were four issues of Liberty Bonds:•Apr 24, 1917 Emergency Loan Act authorizes issue of $5 billion in bonds at 3.5 percent. •Oct 1, 1917 Second Liberty Loan offers $3 billion in bonds at 4 percent. •Apr 5, 1918 Third Liberty Loan offers $3 billion in bonds at 4.5 percent. •Sep 28, 1918 Fourth Liberty Loan offers $6 billion in bonds at 4.25 percent.

Please keep in mind we sell these authentic bonds only as collectibles and not as redeemable securities.
