I wonder if the National Library might have any examples of the First Internal loan certificates.

Good suggestion, it looks like the National Library has examples of these First Internal Loan Certificates. I’ll make a visit when it reopens. :)

I came across a $10 External Loan Bond recently sold alongside an interesting photo showing bond sellers outside the US Capitol. It gives some insight into the fund raising activities of Eamon De Valera in the USA. The caption on the photo reads as follows:

Photograph at the US Capitol, of Congressmen John J. Eagan and Cornelius A. McGlennon, both of New Jersey with two Irish Bond sellers, Eileen Quinlisk and Amelia Rosser.
