PARIS. Cert. Prov. Obligation de F500=187,50 Rbls, specimen. black. #190000. Heavy central fold split the cert. in 2, but taped together again. Otherwise very fine. The loan was raised to acquire the Ryazan-Kozlowsk Railway Company, and to build new lines Tambov to Kamyshin, Uralsk to Pokrovsk, and Eltz to Lebedyan, all south-east of Moscow. This provisional certificate was to be issued in Paris (hence text in French) is not in D/H. The actual bond of course is: D/H 1115. We believe this to be an unissued printer proof as a pencil correction was made and the certificate was printed in black/white while we have seen this share (once) issued and printed green/black (see our Oct. 2015 auction). The certificate we offer here is thus a previously unseen type.
