WESTERVIK. Aktie Ã 1/250. black. #250. No 236. Folds. A very early brandy distiller from the Swedish coastal city of VÃ¤stervik. Around the time this share was issued, the population of VÃ¤servik 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.
