HUNGARY. KELT REV-FÜLÖPÖN. Aktie von 50 frt. black. No 52. Central fold. Almost fully intact paper seal, but apparently leaving some remains on the other half of the page. Small vignette of a steamship at the top. Text in Hungarian. Title in English: the Zala-Somogy Balaton Steamship Co. The Zala River has itssource in the hills on the borders between Hungary, Austria and Slovenia and flows, after 139 km, in Lake Balaton near Keszthely. Zala is also the name of the local county. Somogy is a neighbouring county, starting on the border with Croatia and up to the southern shore of Lake Balaton. Hence, it is not difficult to understand what the purpose of this shipping company was. First time in our auctions.
