Description

    Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna Autographed Bond Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna, (1795?-1876), Mexican general, revolutionist, president and dictator. Santa Anna boldly signs this extremely graphic bond which bears his portrait as well as illustrations of 3 of his grand properties which were used as collateral for the issuance of this bond. It is without doubt the most impressive and ornate of all autographed stocks or bonds. This $500 bond was issued in 1866 from New York City while Santa Anna was living in exile. While he schemed to depose Emperor Maximilian, he issued these bonds in hopes of regaining power. In these attempts, he was captured and sentenced to death. Still, he was released and allowed to retire to New York and later having returned to Mexico, he died in poverty and neglect. Of course, we remember him because of his success over the Texans at the Alamo and later his defeat and capture by Sam Houston at San Jacinto in 1836. Found in an old leather container in Texas, this American bond is fully issued, uncancelled, has no folds, full margins and is in superb condition. A true classic! Accompanied by COA from PSA/DNA.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
