Beautifully engraved antique bond certificate from the New York and Atlantic Railroad Company dating back to the 1880's. This document, which is signed by the company President and Secretary, was printed by Hosford & Sons of New York, and measures approximately 14" (w) by 9" (h).
The certificate features a nice vignette of a train steaming past a hill.
Almost two full paged of coupons (detached) are also included with this bond.
Very hard to find piece!

The New York and Atlantic Railroad Company was incorporated on August 23, 1880. The company's route (about two miles) was as follows:
Commencing at or near the corner of 32nd street and Ninth Avenue, Brooklyn, at the terminus of the New York, Greenwood and Coney Island Railroad; and thence by the most direct and feasible route following the general direction of 37th Street or the continuation thereof to or near Tunisons on Coney Island Avenue.
The company was reoganized in 1887 as the West Brooklyn Railroad Company.
