    Antonio López de Santa Anna Bond Signed "A. L. de Sta. Anna." One partially-printed page, 18.25" x 13.5", New York, June 28, 1866. This ornately engraved $500 mortgage bond, "No. 1354," was issued while Santa Anna was living in exile and scheming to depose Emperor Maximilian. A green notary public seal exists at the right edge, and an orange seal of Santa Anna appears after his signature. Heavily toned along the edges which also show areas of minor chipping.

    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 images of those 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.
