59 NORD. ANICHE. Action d'un Denier. black on vellum. No 278. Folds and rather discoloured paper. See lot 495 for story, but note that we offer here a variety which has not been seen before. First, the coat-of-arms is rather different and b) there are variations in the text. E.g. in this share, the date of foundation of the company is mentioned, which is not the case in the other share-type. Also, the name 'Compagnie d'Aniche' is added. The dates are very near to one another, so we believe this to be indeed the same company, with the same Marquis signingthe share as director. A (unique) novelty, nevertheless.
