ST-PETERSBOURG. Share of 100 Rbls. green, black. No 4990. Central fold. Damaged borders, but not into the printed part of the share. Text in Russian only. Founded 1868 by Prince Peter Trubezkoj and cotton producers Ivan Vargunin and Roman Poplavskij - they all signed his share. The railroad provided a cross link in the railroad spider work around Moscow. It ran from Lichoslavl (on the Moscow-St. Petersburg Railroad) southwest via Torzhok to Vyazma. As such, it formed part of the railroad route from St. Petersburg to the Crimea and Brest. As it remained a single-track railroad, it lost its importance although it continues being used today, mainly by freight trains. This railroad share must be extremely rare and originates from an old collection.
