WESTERVIK. Aktie à 1/250. black. #250. No 236. Folds. A very early brandy distiller from the Swedish coastal city of Västervik. Around the time this share was issued, the population of Väservik was around 3000 people. The share is entirly handwritten, a most unusual feature, plus a red wax seal. Dividend notes on the back indicate a profitable business until at least 1817. This is, apart from an English beer brewery share (1805) and an American wine stock (1811) the oldest share from a beverage company we have ever seen. Extremely rare.
