Joint bond -- A bond for the payment of the principal and
interest on which two (or more) parties are jointly bound.
Such a bond is not uncommon in railroad issues. Two railroads
may jointly guarantee both principal and interest on
bonds issued to acquire a third railroad which is to be owned
by the first two in common.
