Beautiful Philadelphia Paper Bond Printed Over 140 Years Ago
After the American Revolution, the city of Philadelphia was chosen to be the temporary capital of the United States. While the federal and state governments had left the city by the beginning of the 19th century, Philadelphia remained the cultural and financial center of the country as well as being one of the nation’s first industrial centers. It reached the pinnacle of its economic power by the middle of the 1800s and was so financially secure that the city even made loans to its citizens just as a bank would.
Now you can own a piece of the “City of Brotherly Love” with one of these paper bonds issued by the City of Philadelphia more than 140 years ago! Larger than a standard sheet of paper, this attractive City of Philadelphia paper bond would have been given as a title for a loan.
