LOUVAIN. 3% Obligation de F100. black. No 34. Folds and minor edge-splits. Unusual vignette of a farmer sorting out seeds and the (in Latin) Bible saying "Ventilabis eos & ventus tollet" meaning "winnow them, the wind shall carry". Perhaps this refers to the Leuven University students and the activities of the company: printing books. Founded 1905 and probably active until the early 1920s. Text also in Flemish (Keurboekerij). Only this one piece is known to us.
