Hi all, 

My name is Mike, I collect anything paper related, but specifically obsolete and Confederate currency.  Contemporary counterfeit notes are my favorite with the addition,  thanks to a friend National bank notes( Dayton, Ohio) . I'm always willing to learn and help out in anyway.   20200807_173155.jpg  20200807_173219.jpg  20200807_173245.jpg 

I'm also included some pics of a kansas territory bond in Hope's of finding more info and value on the piece. I know a little about it but I'm no expert. Thanks

Yes, like Timmy said, welcome Mike.
Someone here will have more information for you...
However, I do know for a fact that there’s a Tampa Kansas.

Hi, Here’s an interesting item for Photo Friday. It’s not actually a photo, but a scan of a Kansas Territorial Bond, dated May 1, 1859, for $100 to secure repayment of debts incurred by the Territorial Government.ks-terr-bond145-copyThe bond has attached coupons which allowed the bearer to collect the 10% interest specified in the bond. The bonds had been issued under the pretense of repayment for losses which landowners suffered during the “Bleeding Kansas” years. Some $95,700 in bonds were issued by the Kansas Territorial Treasurer.

The issuing of these bonds was, however, completely fraudulent. D.H. Weir, the listed bearer of this bond, was one of the men implicated in the scheme to create the notes of indebtedness which would then have to be repaid by the Federal Government after the anticipated Statehood.  None of the bonds were ever honored or paid.

Welcome Mike! Nice to have someone new with an interest in bonds and such. So yours is #7 and the one Dan Cong posted was #8 -- great connection. I notice that neither of them were signed by the territorial governor, so not much hope of cashing in.

Both payable to D H Weir

Thanks Gregalex . The interesting thing is the one like Dan posted are "said" to be fraudulent.  I did find one on a stacks auction back in 2013 that sold. There was no mention of that particular bond being fraudulent.  I wonder if there were genuine/contemporary counterfeit pieces

I think the fraudulent refers to the fact they were issued with no actually backing or real ability to repay
