PARIS. Titre Provisoire de 1 Obligation. black, grey. No 6351. Some edge-splits and tear (repaired), a little staining. In 1825 Haiti obtained its independence from France, but only after much fighting, and damage to French interests. The new republic agreed to pay France and indemnity of 100 million francs (laterincreased by France to 150 million), in war reparations and in return for French recognition of its independence. In spite of very difficult economic times, Haiti kept up payments of the indemnity until 1875, when France made Haiti a loan to extinguishthe balance of the reparations. Haiti never defaulted on that loan until 1915, when U.S. forces intervened to maintain order in the country. In the 1920s U.S. banks paid off the balance due to France. This loan consisted of 166.906 bonds of 500 francs,issued at 430 francs each, earning 5% and repayable by regular drawings in Paris. Seal of the republic of Haiti. Extremely rare.
