LISBOA. 1 Acçao de 50$000 Reis. black. #2400. No 1509. Folds and a little staining. Very fine large-format share of the company arranging bullfights in Lisbon. Design of a matador saluting the crowd, and the 'cowboys' on the bull farm. A bull's head, sword, lances, arms of the city, and underprint of the Lisbon bullring. This is probably the finest of all known bullfight shares worldwide. The 'sport' differs from that in Spain by being much less cruel. The bull's horns are cut and padded, and the bull is not killed in the arena. In fact, neither bull, bullfighter or horses are seriously hurt, although the bull is usually slaughtered afterwards. Rarity 8.
