A friend of mine found an old Libby Prison Museum Bond, I have researched the history of the prison and what a history it has. This Bond had to have been issued when the building was taken apart and moved from Richmond, Va. to Chicago in the late 1800's to build the Museum. She was wondering if the bond has any kind of value.

Also found was an old movie screenplay from an old silent movie staring Rudolph Valentino.

Rest in Peace

There are people who collect bonds and people who collect Civil War themed items so I would imagine those would be the target audience for this piece of ephemera.

I found this Catalog and Program that details the museum https://archive.org/stream/libbypri.../n1/mode/2up

As for providing a value for this or the screenplay I am out of my realm of knowledge. GregAlex may know or be able to provide some insight on the bond.

I'm slowly building my numismatic library--106 works and counting

With assistance, trying to compile a listing of numismatic reference books & materials available to collectors http://goccf.com/t/174749

Oh Wow, that is great.. I will pass the link on to her. I told her to download some of the info from the Chicago history museum website, then frame that info with the bond. She said it was pretty brittle and was afraid to open it up. As far as the screenplay, she is keeping that, not even going to think about selling that.... Thanks very much for that link, she will love it.
Rest in Peace

If she is going to frame that old paper, be sure that she invests in archival quality materials. The acid in any backing (which is usually cardboard) could destroy it. Search for Archival or Museum quality items.

I told her to talk to somebody at a museum for advice.

Without seeing the whole bond it's hard to offer much of an opinion, but I agree this likely would have some value to collectors of war material. However, if it's as brittle as you describe that may detract from it's value. I would think the screenplay would be far more valuable. What does a silent movie script even look like -- is there dialogue? :-)
