PARIS. Action de F500, printer proof. blue, brown. Original service created 1854, by the Paris-Lyon-Marseille Railway Co., to offer fast shipping services between Nice and Corsica. To be much quicker (only 6 hours) and more comfortable than the existing route from Marseille, and to bring development andprosperity to the neglected département. This company was formed Paris, 1867. The 1893 share is a real beauty with a very fine vignette covering the whole cert. It shows one of the company's steamships sailing out of the port of Nice, view of the city,a lovely lady with the arms of Nice, palm-trees, flowers, etc. Surely a unique printer proof.
