Anyone have any idea? I'm usually pretty good finding things on the Interwebs....no luck here.

I figured it out....a little. They are coupons the buyer redeemed for interest payment. Apparently they were attatched to the bottom of the bond. I know the bonds themselves are collectible. Anyone know if anybody collects the payment coupons?
