    Description

    Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna Bond Signed "A. L. Sta. Anna". One partially printed page, 18.5" x 13.5", New York, June 28, 1866. This ornately engraved $500 mortgage bond, "No. 1283", was issued while Santa Anna was living in exile and scheming to depose Emperor Maximilian. A stamp on the verso says that interest is paid at "7 per cent. per annum." Green notary public seal at the right edge, orange seal of Santa Anna after his signature. Lightly toned, especially along the right edge. Some minor chipping along the edges.

    Nearly broke, Santa Anna, the former Mexican general, president, and dictator issued these bonds on his properties to raise capital. Engraved on the bond are three of his properties as well as his portrait. Allowed to finally return to Mexico following the death of Benito Juárez in 1874, he was ignored by the Mexican government and died two years later poor and heartbroken.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
