Visit the Wall Street Collectors Bourse IV

During the Revolutionary War, Jonathan Trumbull, then-governor of Connecticut and after whom Trumbull, Connecticut, is named, raised a lot of money to help its funding. Connecticut was the main source of supplies for the northern and middle states, and more of its debt instruments survive from the period than from any other state. In 1864, this certificate was issued to recall the sacrifices made by Trumbull, also known as “Brother Jonathan.” As General George Washington’s close friend, advisor, and aide throughout the war, the General gave him his nickname. "We must consult Brother Jonathan,” is used in New England to this day, an iconic symbol of the part the northern colonies played in our independence from Great Britain.

This, and other historic certificates, will be on display at the Wall Street Collectors Bourse IV October 23-25, 2014 at the Museum of American Finance, 48 Wall Street, New York (www.moaf.org).  Themed “America the Beautiful” this year,  the show will host dealers in coins, banknotes, stock and bond certificates, autographs, medals, and other financial memorabilia, and include an auction by Archives International Auctions.

Bourse2014

As the Museum is admission free for the Bourse weekend, attendees can visit the Show and the Museum’s exhibits at the same time.  A current exhibit, “The Fed at 100,” commemorates the centennial of the Federal Reserve System.  Another exhibit commemorates the 225th anniversary of Alexander Hamilton’s appointment as America’s first Secretary of the Treasury.

Archives International Auctions will hold an auction on Saturday, October 25, at 10:30 a.m., in the Museum Gallery.  In October 2013, Archives International offered a rare and historic 1792 U.S. Treasury Bond with then-President George Washington’s signature.  It was the highlight of the sale and sold for $265,500. 

The 2014 Anniversary Celebration of Important Global Companies is also featured in the show. 

Show hours:
Thursday, October 23, 12pm – 7pm
Friday, October 24, 10am-5pm
Saturday, October 25, 10am-3pm (Auction 10:30am)
