The New York Times is carrying and interesting story on some of the oldest US bonds ever issued, which are coming due in 02009. They are civil war bonds from 01868. Ironic that we are just about to pay off our very first bonds in the same year that we are likely to incur the largest bond debt in the history of our nation (that is if China will buy it of course).
