The 14th Amendment to the Constitution of the United States outlawed the use of any currency not issued by the federal government. However, in the 1870s, the State of Louisiana, still licking it wounds from the defeat in the Civil War, tried to outsmart the government by producing bonds with interest bearing coupons. The "Baby Bond" is the most famous and sought after of these "bonds." These bonds were bought by parents and relatives and at maturity were worth $5. They paid annual interest of 7.5 cents! This has 4 coupons still attached.
