BREMEN. PARIS. Action de F4000. black. No 292. Somewhat damaged borders. In 1807 Napoleon, as Protector of the Confederation of the Rhine, decreed that certain properties were to be taken over by him. Among these was an estate at Bremervoede, near Bremen. The Société de Hanovre was formed to commercialise these properties, selling shares at F4000 each in exchange for one year's revenue from an estate. Corner vignettes of the crowned "N" arms of Napoleon. Red stamp of the company. There were only two such 'German-Napoleonic' companies created, Hanovre and Westphalie, and material from this one, Hanovre, is by far the rarer.
