PARIS. Action de F500. blue on pink paper. #1600. No 12. Folds. France annexed the Antarctic Ocean Island of Kerguélen in 1893, and its exploitation (with that of other islands in the region) to this company. It is difficult to know what were the commercial possibilities. There is no permanent settlement, andthe islands are extremely rainy and windy. High costs would have made any products expensive. First time we see this early type, share No.12, which, although undated, is probably from the 1890s.
