Extremely beautiful promissory note (slave letter), numbered 308, ‘Suriname den 9 July 1863’, issued and signed by the Governor of the Suriname Colony as a compensation for slave owners for the abolition of slavery in 1863.
This promissory note was signed by R.F. van Lansberge and the amount is 1,000.00 guilders! The amount was redeemed on 30 September 1863. That was pretty soon.
With beautiful image of three-master and many comments, vignette on verso, dry stamp and other stamps, interesting historical document.
Condition: The document is in good condition, but with some folds, the usual spot, and with some pinholes.
Of course with signs of age.
Photos are part of the description.
Will be carefully packaged and sent with track and trace.
