Issued by Dáil Eireann, with printed signatures of Sean Noonan, Registrar, and Eamon de Valera (‘Eamon de bhaileara’). Issued to John C Crane. A very rare denomination. Issued to raise funds for Dáil Éireann. Éamon de Valera, the president of the first Dáil, issued this bond in 1920 during the War of Independence. While on his American tour, de Valera raised over five million dollars through the sale of republican bonds. De Valera claimed the funds on behalf of his party. The Free State government, under President William T. Cosgrave, also claimed the funds. While the Irish High Court remitted half the funds to the Irish government, the other half remained on deposit in New York. Signatures: Sean Noonan & Eamon De Valera. Issued to: John C Crane.
