HABANA. 1 Accion de 100 Pesos. black. No 253. Two heavy folds, enforced with tape on the back. Several small holes on the right border (outside the printd part of the share). Little is known about this early company. The large vignette shows sailing-ships by small port where cargo awaits them, alsoan anchor. It seems likely this was a coastal shipping company. We cannot explain the name 'Filipina'; there is surely no connection with the Spanish Cia de Filipinas, nor at all with the Philippines, although both Cuba and Philipines were Spanish colonies at the time. Only two pieces have been found, in 2005.
