WEST-VLAANDEREN. BRUGGE/HEYST. Inschrijving bevoorrecht aandeel F500. black. #1000. Provisional certificate for first payment of F50/share, in accordance with the law and the company statutes and issued by the City of Bruges. The subscriber, a Mr. Alfons Van Quickelborne, subscribed for one of the 1000 shares available to the general public (the other 8000 privilégiée shares were allocated to bankers, engineers, etc. engaged on the project). All applicants for no more than five shares were guaranteed to receive the share/s requested; larger subscribers were subject to a reduction in the event of demand exceeding the 1000 shares available. The remainder of the purchase price was to be called by the company as needed. Only after full payment were the definitive shares issued to bearer. This happened in 1904, when the well-known and very popular definitives were delivered. The company was to build a port at Heyst, also a port at Bruges and a canal linking the two.
