Brussels, BelgiumLive Auction
Description: 10 February 1892 69 RHONE. LYON. 1 Action de F500. green, brown. No 333. Folds. Formed Lyon, 1892. Head office in that city. The design shows clearly the shipping theme. We see various shipping at a port, lighthouse, sailor, anchor, barrels of freight, etc. Arms of Lyon and Russia. Allegorical figures representing the two countries, in an architectural frame, and a very decorative border. Small capital, 200.000 fr, divided into 400 shares. The company statues on the back make clear this is a trading company focusing on import/export between Russia and France. A wonderful share, only this one 'action' is known to us (except for one founder share, which we sold earlier), hence rarity 12. From an old collection.
