1838 $2000 State of Mississippi Bond

1838 $2000 State of Mississippi Bond Certificate.  Gorgeous early Mississippi bond with central vignette of allegorical females, and bottom vignette of a steamboat with stacked cotton bales.  These bonds were issued to provide starting capital for the Mississippi Union Bank, which failed in 1841.  The state of Mississippi subsequently repudiated the bonds.  VF+ condition

Purchasing Notes: Payment by check or PayPal. You can opt out of insurance, which I generally recommend. Ruby Lane strongly encourages insurance. However, this may not make sense on scripophily shipments (which are not exactly breakable). My experience in mailing thousands of packages is that less than one out of 500 packages does not arrive in good condition. Still, Insurance is recommended on orders over $100. On multiple certificate orders Ruby Lane does not compute the insurance charge correctly. I will correct overpayments, but it is best to get accurate order amount before paying. Do not hesitate to email me if you have any questions.
