Beautiful promissory note (slave letter), numbered 197, ‘Curaçao den 25 Augustus 1863’, issued and signed by the Governor of the Curaçao Colony as a compensation to slave owners for the abolition of slavery in 1863.
This promissory note was signed by him and the amount is 700 guilders. The amount was paid out on 21 November 1863.
With many notes, several names and stamps, very interesting historical document.
Condition: The document is in good condition and rare, there are some slight folds, frayed edges and a few pinholes, as is normal for these items.
Of course with signs of age.
The photos are part of the description.
Will be carefully packaged and shipped with track and trace.
