Printed on pink paper, the central vignette of this piece depicts a Confederate officer, leaning against a tree while overlooking the Rappahannock River. A small vignette depicting a steamboat on a river racing a train on the bank. The financial obligation appears between these two scenes, all of it enclosed within a fancy border. Printed by Archer & Daly in Richmond, Virginia, a total of 31,066 of these pieces were issued between June 9, 1863 and January 17, 1864. This particular piece, though fully numbered and signed, was apparently never issued since all of the interest coupons are still attached below the principle instrument. There are a total of 10 coupons, all hand numbered and hand signed by Miss M. L. Marshall, a female employee of the Confederate Treasury. The bond itself is signed at the conclusion by Robert Tyler, son of the 10th President of the United States, John Tyler.

Several filing folds and light wrinkling are present, with some minor toning along the folds. A dark red Treasury seal is present in the upper right corner of the verso, with some light transfer on the recto. One of the most popular Confederate bonds on the market.
