How do you find out how much bonds were worth as of December 2002 and June 2004?
Whenever I’m asked this question, I think it’s also good for me to ask you, Why do you want to know? Usually it’s because people want to know how much bonds were worth on the day the person they inherited them from died.
If that’s what you’re after, I’d suggest you read Cost basis for inherited Savings Bonds before you bother looking up the historical values.
Otherwise, any of these calculators allow you to enter a valuation date different from today:
All of them have a pricing date field near the top. Just set the date in that field to the month you’re curious about. The values shown will then be as of that pricing date.
