Beautifully engraved antique stock certificate from the European Time Table Distributing Company dating back to the 1910's. This document, which is signed by the company President and Secretary, was printed by Goes and measures approximately 10 1/4" (w) by 8 1/8" (h).
This certificate's vignette features an eagle on a shield. The eagle holds in its talons a staff with a Phrygian Cap.
You will receive the exact certificate pictured.
Please note there is a 2" tape repair on the verso.
The European Time Table Distributing Company was incorporated in New York and had offices at 4 Benson Street - a rare "named" dead end street in Manhattan located off Leonard Street between Broadway and Lafayette Streets.
There is no historical background on this company, but it in all likelihood produced European train time table booklets - sort of an early travel guide.
Very interesting piece!
