Saw this in an antique store this weekend. I did not get it as I have no knowledge of this sort of thing. Thoughts?
This is a coupon clipped from the bottom of a bond and not the actual bond.
Their value is minimal, perhaps a small fraction (1-2%?) of the value of the bond.
Many Confederate bonds can be bought for under $50 and will often contain several dozen coupons.
Unfortunately it appears this coupon was clipped from a bond to sell separately, as the interest due date shown is January 1 1866, and of course the War was over by then so no interest would have been paid.
Would have been nice to keep the bond & coupons intact. Hopefully it was a common bond.
Thank you for this insight. I didn't have any interest in owning it, but was curious as to what it was.
