1887 Chesapeake & Delaware Canal Co. $500 Bond Certificate. Very attractive bond of this famous old canal with vignettes of canal boats at dock and canal lock. The Chesapeake & Delaware canal connects the Delaware River with the upper Chesapeake Bay providing a direct water link between Philadelphia and Baltimore. Construction was initiated in 1804, but due to a lack of financial capital, the canal was not completed until 1829. It is actively used today. Certificate is in VF+ condition.
Purchasing Notes: Payment by check or PayPal. Insurance is bundled with shipping. I use a third party shipping insurer (not USPS, which does not insure 1st class large envelops, and is seriously overpriced due to pervasive fraudulent claims). I offer two domestic shipping choices: $3.50 for first class, and $7.50 for Priority. Priority is recommended for orders over $100. International shipping is $6.00 for a large 1st class envelope. Other international options are usually too expensive. Shipping charge does not increase if you order more than one item. Shipping in the US is very reliable. I lose less than one item for every 1000 I ship, and I have never made a claim for a damaged shipment in over 20 years (scripophily shipments are not exactly breakable). Do not hesitate to email me if you have any questions.
