PLZEN. 6% First Mortgage Debenture of £100. brown, black. #16250. No 267115. Skoda was one of the most important industrial concerns of the Austro-Hungarian empire. In 1923 it started car production, building Hispano-Suizas under licence. The engine was a 6-litre 6-cylinder type, with body of Skoda's own design. In 1925 Skoda took over the Laurin & Klement works at Mlada Boleslav, and production of Skoda cars began there. The range included 4-, 6- and 8-cylinder models of conventional design. More advanced ideas came in with the 1930s and Skoda cars became famous, with a good record in rallies. The range improved steadily to 1939, when factory was doubtless converted to production for the German military. After the war civil production restarted and continues today, now as part of the Volkswagen/Audi Gruppe. This bond is part of a loan of £5 million, raised in London and Paris in 1930, partly to refinance an existing loan at 7.5%.
