If the judgement of the court below has been fully satisifed, then the bond would be released, you could show a satisfaction of judgment. The appeal bond is to assure payment of the lower court judgment if the appeal is not successful. Otherwise, the bond will not be released and I am surprised it has not been called upon if the original judgment has not been satisfied.

Unless the case was dismissed and terminated without an award of money damages for the prevention of the sale, the appeal bond will remain. If you have a order terminating the case with prejudice and lifting the stay with no award of damages, then you should be able to terminate the appeal bond. Conttact the clerk of the court as you may not need an order to show cause just a stipulation from the other side agreeing that the bond is no longer needed.
