The Frederick R. Mayer Collection

One of the key collectors of Confederate bonds in the U.S. in the 1980s and 90s was Frederick R. Mayer of Denver, Colorado. It was his “world class” collection of Confederate bonds that he enjoyed. His real goal was to create collections that could be turned into books or catalogs, thus adding to the knowledge and pleasure of future collectors. That is exactly what Mr. Mayer accomplished with his extraordinary collection of Confederate bonds. Many of the great rarities were used to provide the plate illustrations in Ball’s Confederate Bonds book.

Recently, we were fortunate to purchase a large segment of Mr. Mayer’s collection of Confederate bonds. These bonds now offered have a rich and interesting history. CSA Government, Bond holders, Confederate Bond Holders Committee-London, The Coutts Bank-London, Sotheby’s-London, Dr. Douglas Ball, Frederick R. Mayer-Denver, and now George H. LaBarre Galleries.

If you would like to add to your collection or if you would like to start a collection, this offering will give you an opportunity to buy some great bonds. Please phone 800 717-9529 and ask for George if you would like to build a fine collection of Confederate bonds.
