ST.PETERSBURG/LONDON. 5% Annuity 960 Rbls=£148 Stg - duplicate issue. black. No 73953/19735. Folds and a few edge-tears. The original 1822 printing of these bonds is now well known. But this is a later printing of the same bonds, in generally the same form but on a larger sheet of paper, with the bond serial number printed instead of hand-written, and with a reference to a new coupon-sheet issued in 1846. This is issued in 1884 as a duplicate of the original bond, which had become in very poor condition. The new printing is apparently signed on behalf of N.M.Rothschild as contractor. Only once before offered by us.
