BRUSSEL. Aandeel van 5.000 Frank. green, yellow, black. #10. No 09. Faint staining. Dutch-looking share, but printed in Brussels where this gin distillery was founded in 1947. However, there's a strong link with the Netherlands: Hartevelt & Zoon (renamed "De Fransche Kroon) was founded in Leiden in 1734 and grew to become the third biggest distillery in the Netherlands by 1960. Taken over by Bols in 1968 who continued to use the brand name Hartevelt for some of its liquors. This Belgian company was a subsidiary of the Dutch firm. Never before seen by us.
