Confederate Bond. $1,000.00 and $40.00 bonds signed by M. E. Bronaugh for Register of the Treasury, March 2, 1863. Confederate bonds had a series of interest notes attached. Each interest note could be cashed in at a C.S.A. treasury on its maturity date, usually every six months from the original date of issue. When all the interest notes had been redeemed, the bond itself could be cashed in for its full face value.
