MOSCOW. Share of 100 Rbls. brown. No 1730. One small edge-tear, repaired. Issued during the New Economic Policy of Lenin (NEP). Founded by Josef A. Wolynskij as a Moscow producer of vitamins and related food supplements, marketed as Fitina-Inosit. Clients were pharmacists, breweries and medicalcompanies. The communists confiscated Wolynskij's factory first, but got it back under the NEP policy. A few years later however, under Stalin, he lost it for good. The share was originally a bearer certificate but after new legislation (17.08.1927) waschanged into a nominative share, as evidenced on the back of the share where we can see the name of the shareholder, A.N. Waldenberg. This law made it easy for Stalin to later on detect the Russian capitalists. Vignette of the company logo.
