NEW YORK. Shares of $10. olive, black. No 148. Folds. Manufactured a raft for saving life from sinking ships, and perhaps the only share issue of this theme. Fine vignette of the life raft with shipwrecked sailors, pleased to see a ship. Issued a year after the Civil War at a time the American economy (and thus the shipping business) started to flourish. Certainly extremely rare.
