Description

    Antonio López de Santa Anna Engraved Mortgage Bond Signed "A.L. de Sta. Anna", $500 Bond, No. 876, 18.5" x 13.5", June 28, 1866, printed by Nathan Lane, New York. The engravings on the bond depict three of the Mexican leader's properties, which he was mortgaging at the time. Following his exile to the United States in 1855, Santa Anna suffered financial difficulties. He was swindled out of most of his fortune by persons who claimed to be able to help him return to Mexico, citing their influence with the State Department. Virtually broke, Santa Anna resorted to issuing mortgage bonds like this one on his properties to raise capital. Upon the death of Benito Juárez in 1872, Santa Anna was finally permitted to return home to Mexico, where he died ignored and almost penniless in 1876. Toned; fine.
