$1,000 Registered Loan of 1847
Six Percent Twenty-year Bond, Paid Semi-annually
This loan was printed for issue in the 1850's. Unlike several known proof examples (not intended ever to be issued) from this time period, this is an actual bond. As it is unissued, it is given the numismatic distinction of being a "remainder." It prominently features an engraving of not only the bald eagle at its top center, but representations of the States' seals as well. Printed by Rawdon, Wright, Hatch & Edson of New York.
This example is from The Joe I. Herbstman Memorial Collection of American Finance
