Washington, D.C., issued March 1813. Six Percent Certificate of Annuity. This remainder was bound into a book which contained a group of Letters (Reports) from the Secretary of the Navy with accounting of the Navy Department during the years of 1814-1815. Printers of the documents from ÒWashington CityÓ are Roger Chew Weightman and A. & G. Way. Documents contain various expenditures during the period and to whom they were made. It is postulated by your cataloguer with paper being so expensive at that period of history, printers and book binders used what they could to bolster the bindings of reports and books. Without that practice this document would have been lost to history. The Receipt Remainder while in portions is in need of archival restoration. Nonetheless, this is a significant fiscal document from the formative years of our nationÕs history. The bond was issued by Act of February 8, 1813 and is listed on pages 88 & 89, as an (R-8) in the Hessler Guide. The Receipt like bond displays the ÒGreat Seal with RamÕs head above, safety numerals on the indented border. As an (R-8) which designates only 1-3 specimens remain, this may be your only chance of a representative example of this issue! Worthy of notice to any collector of early U.S. Treasury Fiscal paper.
