OHIO. CINCINNATI. Cert. of 2 Shares of $50. green, black. No 290. Folds. Design of some of the zoo's animals - lion, leopard, crocodile, giraffes, deer, flamingoes - all in exotic vegetation. Founded in 1873 by Dr. Alfred Brehm and Andrew Erkenbrecher (German immigrants) with a capital of $300,000 but not all of the 6000 shares could be sold. Opened to the public in 1875 and still a very popular attraction today, with over one million visitors annually. Arguably the rarest of all American zoo shares as since many years only two other pieces are known to us.
