44 LOIRE-ATLANTIQUE. NANTES. Action de F1000. black on pink paper. #1500. No 1087. Company formed in 1845 to exploit land on the island of Mayotte. Mayotte was bought by France from the King of Madagascar in 1843; the other Comoro islands became a French protectorate in 1886. The Comoros are north of Madagascar; in 1975 they became anindependent republic, except for Mayotte, which chose to remain French. We believe the main aim of the company was to grow sugar-cane. Square format. The earliest Comorian share we have seen apart from this one is dated 1905... Nantes has a very long tradition and history of trade with the colonies, and import of tropical produce.
