PARIS. 3% Obligation de F500. blue. #150. No 103. Formed Saigon, 1896, to exploit deposits of tin at Hin-Boun, near Thakhek, in southern Laos. However, the deposits were difficult to work, and the modest production was sent to Thailand for use as weights for fishing nets. The Hin-Boun deposits are today worked by a joint Laos/North Korea venture. First time we see a bond from this company. Only 150 of these were originally issued.
