PARIS. Action de F100. green, black. #2500. Founded in Paris, 1903 with a capital of 250.000 frs. divided into 2500 shares of which we offer here 25 pieces. This is the complete lot which was recently discovered in an estate of an old French family who was involved in this company and the Hoa-Hucompany (see previous lot). The 2 companies are clearly linked. Paul Claudel speaks in his letters about a contract between the Soc. d'Etudes du Fokien and the Chinese Government (Vice King Li) allowing the company to start the exploitation of certain miningconcessions. Discussions about this contract arose in 1905 and lead Paul Claudel to intervene with Wei Koan Tao, Vice King of Mintche. We discovered that the Banque de l'Indochine was involved in the company capital, and this on request of the French Government. Previously no scripophily of this company was known to us.
