Unsecured bonds, sometimes caller "plain" bonds, are credit instruments or unconditional contracts for the payment of money, to the holders of which no collateral contract is made, the payment of which is conditioned on default on the original or credit contract. It is commonly thought that what in the market is dominated a bond is secured. This is error. Some of the best bonds dealt in on the exchanges are in the nature of unsecured promises to pay. They are bought and sold on the open credit of the issuer, in the same manner as are one-name commercial papers. Among these are the issues of the federal and state governments, municipalities, county bonds, etc. The Bank of the United States issued unsecured bonds. In this country practically the only form of security given for the bonds of public corporations is a sinking fund. This may be a cumulating security or it may cover the principal from the date of issue. An instance of such secured municipal bond is found in the issues of the city of Chicago, where, at the time the issues were authorized, a tax was levied for the full amount, payable and collectible by instalments over the life of the bond. Among the unsecured private or corporate bonds are the debentures of railroads. more
