Ordinary Shares of 1 Shilling. black. No 32. Small brown spots across the cert. Repaired edge-tears. Folds. Kauri trees or Agathis australis are unique to New Zealand and have grown there for more than 150 million years. Over time Kauri trees grew, died and decayed, leaving behind a resinous gum. This buried gum was often found in swamps where mining techniques were needed to retrieve it. Until 1914 Kauri gum was the largest mineral export from New Zealand. It was used to manufacture high quality wood varnish and was also used in linoleum. Fromthe mid 1930s Kauri gum was progressively replaced by synthetic resins, and the Kauri gum mining industry died out. We have not seen any scripophily of this industry before.
