NEWOLD CHINESE LOTTERY LOAN BOND

China 1926 Lottery Loan Bond for Port of Whampoa
The Republic of China issued this 5 Dollar Second Nationalist Government Lottery Loan bond in 1926 to raise money to finance improvements in the Port of Whampoa in Canton, (now Pazou, a section of Guangzhou).  Rather than pay interest the bonds were automatically entered into a tri-monthly lottery that paid prizes from $1,000 to $50,000. This made the bonds popular with the Chinese, who are natural gamblers.  The front of the bond is in Chinese, the reverse in English.  Both the front and back are underprinted with a map of the port. The bonds specify that they are denominated  as "5 Dollars Canton Currency".  At the time the bond was issued China was involved in a three-way civil war between Northern China, Southern China and the Communists, each issuing its own currency, so it was necessary to specify which exactly Chinese currency.   The bond measures about 7 1/4" x 5" (18cm x 13cm).

This 1938 5 Dollar Chinese War bond include two wonderful vignettes.  One showing an aerial dogfight, the other depicting costal gun emplacements blasting ships offshore.  The bond was issued by Kwangtung Province of China in March 1938 to raise funds in a desperate attempt to stop the Japanese invasion of China.  By the time the bonds were issued, Japan had already begun an naval and aerial blockade of Canton (now Guangzhou), the capital of Kwangtung Province (now Guangzhou).  Beijing, Shanghai and the national capital of Nanjing had already fallen to the Japanese.  The defense of Canton failed and the city fell to the Japanese in December 1938. The bonds are labeled in Chinese "27th year Kwangtung Province National Defense Public Bond" and paid a 4% interest.  Only the first three coupons on each bond have been clipped.  The bond measures approximately 10.5"x12.5" (26x31.5cm) and is blue. It is an important item issued during the Japanese invasion of China.

UNUSUAL 1925 GERMAN REPLACEMENT "DOUBLE" BONDS

Germany - Weimar Republic 25 Reichsmark 1925 replacement bond
These unusual 1925 German 25 Reichsmark 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.  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.  It is an interesting and unusual piece of German economic history.

NEWHISTORIC 1930 YOUNG PLAN BONDS ATTEMPT TO PAY GERMAN WAR REPARATIONS

Germany - 1000 Dutch Florin 1930 Young Plan BondGermany - 1000 Swiss Francs 1930 Young Plan Bond with coupons
After its defeat in World War I, Germany was saddled with heavy war reparations, the repayment of which contributed to the 1923 German hyperinflation and helped bring Hitler to power.  An attempt was made in 1924 to restructure the payments, however that quickly failed.  A second attempt was made in 1929.  The proposal was known as the Young Plan.  It was named after its chairman, American industrialist Owen D. Young, who founded the Radio Corporation of America (RCA) and was Chairman of General Electric.   The Young Plan reduced payments by about 20%, stretched payment out over 58 years, and created the Bank of International Settlements to facilitate the reparation payments.  One third of the annual reparations were to be paid by Germany from general revenue, however that payment could be postponed. Two thirds of the annual payments were to be financed by a consortium of American banks and were "unconditional".  In 1930 bonds were issued various currencies to help implement the plan.  The plan however quickly failed.  The stock market crash of 1929, the start of the Great Depression and the collapse of international trade made the plan infeasible. As might be expected, the plan was unpopular with most Germans and Hitler made repudiation of the war reparations a major element of his campaigns.  He repudiated the debt after becoming Chancellor in 1933. After Germany's defeat in World War II the payments were again restructured, and Germany finally paid off the last of its reparation debt and interest in 2020, 92 years after its defeat in World War I.  We offer two of the historic 1930 Young Plan Bonds: 1000 Dutch Florin (Gulden) and 1000 Swiss Francs.  The bonds paid 5 1/2% interest.  They have texts in German, English and French.    The large sized bonds measure approximately 11.75" x 16.5" (300 x 420mm) and have been punch canceled.  The Dutch bonds include an orange Dutch revenue stamp imprint. The text of the bond indicates the equivalent value of 1000 Dutch Florin in German Reichmarks, US Dollars, British Pound Sterling, French Francs, Belgian Belgas (5 Belgian Francs), Italian Lire, Swedish Kronor and Swiss Francs.  The Swiss bonds include a partial sheet of 41 coupons, dating from June 1, 1945 to June 1 1965.  They are important but rarely seen financial instruments.

The original issue is dated 1933.  The 1934 has two red guiloches overprinted on the left side of the 1933 notes, with the lower guiloche containing the date 1934.

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.

HUNDIS FROM INDIA

India Hundi Note, 1 RupeeIndia 2 Rupee Hundi Note
The Hundi is a financial instrument developed by the native bankers in India.  It can perform a variety of banking tasks.  Depending on how it is written it may act like a Bill of Exchange, extension of credit, transfer of funds, or a travelers check. The Indian government, seeing a lucrative source of revenue, required all Hundis to be written on a special watermarked government form bearing a tax imprint.  We offer a set of two Hundi notes.  Included is a Hundi bearing a 2 Rupee tax imprint on a mostly blank form that references another document, and a Hundi bearing a 1 Rupee tax imprint that is on a pre-printed form for the Swadeshi Cotton Mills Company Limited.
