STOCKS, BONDS & FISCAL PAPER


NEW1876 AUSTRIAN EMPIRE GOLD BOND WITH A NAZI CONNECTION

Austria 200 Florin 1876 Gold BondIn 1876 the government of Austria issued this perpetual 4% 200 Florin gold bond.  Perpetual bonds are a permanent loan that are intended to not be paid redeemed, they just keep paying the stated interest forever. According to its original terms it paid a semi-annual interest payment of 4 Gold Florins, payable in either Austrian or Hungarian Florins, or 10 gold French Francs or 8.1 German Mark.  Because these currencies were all on the Gold Standard, these all represented the same amount of gold - .0933 troy ounces. Though the bond may have been perpetual, governments are not. After the collapse of the Austrian Empire and economic breakdown following World War I the terms of the bonds were changed. Interest would only be paid annually and the amount would depend on the amount of funds collected from the successor nations of the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy.It is unclear how much was actually paid.In March 1938 Nazi Germany annexed Austria and redeemed the bonds.The bonds were then put into storage at the Reichsbank in Berlin where they were forgotten for the next 75+ years. The large-sized bond measures approximately 9.5" x 15" (24 x 38 cm)   It is written in German and French. Included is a full sheet of 24 coupons, due to be redeemed from 1937 to 1960. The bond and coupon sheet are cancelled with a single punch.

In the 1950's it was one of the largest gold mines in Africa, employing some 19,000 locals.  After Congo's independence in 1960 output declined severely.  In 1966 the mines were nationalized and regular production has now almost completely ceased.

UNUSUAL 1925 GERMAN REPLACEMENT "DOUBLE" BONDS

Germany - Weimar Republic 200 Reichsmark 1925 replacement bond
These unusual 1925 German Replacement bonds are in effect two bonds in one!   Germans invested heavily in war bonds during World War I. Following the war many Germans were forced to buy government bonds in an effort by the German government to raise money to pay the heavy war reparations forced on Germany by the Allies.  The 1922-1923 German hyperinflation completely wiped out the value of the bonds and left Germans impoverished.  After the value of the Mark was stabilized in 1924 Germans were partially compensated for their losses with these 1925 Replacement Bonds.  The conversion rate between the old bonds and replacement bonds was between 2 1/2 and 15 percent, so the they still lost a lot, but at least they got something to help quiet the unhappy citizens.  The Replacement bonds are in effect two bonds in one.  The left-hand side is a debenture that was not to be repaid until after all the war reparations payment had been made.  The right-hand side had side was a lottery bond in which a portion of the bonds would be drawn each year and redeemed for five times the face value of the bond.   We have these unusual replacement bonds in five different denominations: 12 1/2 Reichsmark, 25 Reichsmark, 50 Reichsmark, 100 Reichsmark and 200 Reichsmark.  All the denominations have the same basic design. The large-size bonds measure 42 x 29.5cm (16.5" x 11.5") are folded in the center. The bonds are almost Uncirculated.  A punch cancellation is in the border.  They are an interesting and unusual piece of German economic history.

Embossed Nazi Emblem on 1942 German BondsThese bonds were issued by Nazi Germany between 1935 and 1942.  The bonds had a lottery aspect, with a portion of the bonds being drawn each year for repayment.   The 1935 and 1936 bonds were issued by the Reich Debt Administration and carry a nominal interest rate of 4 1/2%.  The 1935 issue bear, the Reich’s eagle from the Weimar Republic, the 1936 have the Nazi Eagle & Swastika emblem.  The 1942 bonds were issued by the state of Thuringia with a nominal interest rate of 3 1/2%.  They have the embossed Nazi eagle & swastika emblem.   The bonds measure approximately 8.5" x 11.75" (21cm x 29.5cm) and have been canceled by a single hole punch.  The bonds have a remarkable history.  Having been stored in the impenetrable safe of the Reichsbank in Berlin, they survived the Second World War unscathed by bombings. Even during the years of the German Democratic Republic they went largely untouched.  In 2015 the German Ministry of Finance had the bonds sold at auction, with the proceeds going to the Nazi Crimes Compensation Fund.  They are remarkable and historic items of Nazi German economic history.

NEWWWI HUNGARIAN WAR BOND

Kingdom of Hungary 50 Crowns (Krona) 1917 war bondThis large (15.75" x 9.75", 25 x 40cm) bearer bond was issued by the Royal Hungarian Ministry of Finance on May 12, 1917 for 50 Crowns (Krona). The bond is written in four languages: Hungarian, German, French and English. At the time Hungary, as part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, was engaged in World War I and needed funds to continue its war effort. Only about 5% of the cost of Hungary's war effort was covered by regular government revenue (taxes, etc.) Most of the rest came from issuing bonds or borrowings from the Central Bank. All citizens and soldiers were expected to purchase bonds to support the war effort. The bond paid 6% annual interest, tax and duty free. Included with the bond was a sheet of semi-annual coupons.  The bond had no maturity, but was callable any time after August 1, 1922.  That never happened.  With the defeat and breakup of the Austro-Hungarian Empire in November 1918 and the enormous level of debt accumulated during the war, the value of the currency - and the bonds collapsed. It is an historic World War I bond that has never been redeemed.

Westshore Railroad $1000 bond payable in 2361AD Westshore Railroad $1000 bond payable in 2361AD  Vignette of old Hudson River scene with ships and train on Westshore Railroad bond
The Westshore Railroad Company was created to compete against the New York Central.  It operated over 488 miles of track from Weehawken, New Jersey, which is across the Hudson River from New York City, to Albany and Buffalo. In 1885 the New York Central drove it into bankruptcy, then leased it back for 475 years starting January 1, 1886.  The New York Central  had the West Shore issue $50,000,000 of these Registered bonds at 4% interest, with the principal not due until the lease ran out in 2361AD.  Talk about thinking long term!   The Westshore Railroad and the New York Central are long gone. Much of the line is now part of the CSX system.  One side of this large size beautifully engraved $1000 has wonderful old vignette of a river scene that includes sailing ships, steam boats and a passanger train.  The other side has an eagle vignette. These bonds are dated in the 1940's and 1950's and are punch cancelled.
