LIEGE. SERAING. 6,5% Bon de Caisse de F1000, specimen. red, black. #40000. In 1814 the brothers Charles-James and John Cockerill bought the castle at Seraing of the prince-bishops of Liège, and built there one of the largest, most modern and powerful metallurgical plants in the whole of Europe. Charles-James withdrew from the business in 1823, leaving John as the sole owner. First a machinery factory, then a smelter, then blast-furnaces were built. Cockerill also bought coal-mines to serve the plant. And the rest, as they say, is history. For over 150 years this has been oneof the most important industrial companies in Belgium. This type is new to us.
