Brussels, BelgiumLive Auction
Description: 1 January 1876 NAMUR/LIEGE/HUY/BRUX. Action de F500. brown, green. #36000. No 33755. Heavy folds, several repaired edge-tears and a large stretch of old-style tape on the back lead us to mark the condition of this certificate as fine. Founded 1873 by the Société Belge de Chemins de Fer (Adolphe Stoclet). This company finished the work started by the S.A. du Chemin de fer Hesbaye et Condroz to connect Landen with Ciney by railroad. Once the construction was finished, the line was sold to the Belgian State. The company capital, 18 million francs, was divided into 36.000 shares. The Soc. Belge de Chemin de Fer owned 22.650 shares and the C.D.F. Hesbaye et Condroz 12.750. Hence, only 600 shares were not in fix hands, explaining the great rarity of this share. Only 2-3 pieces known to us.
