PARIS. Action de F5000, unissued. black on vellum paper. Very high nominal value and only 60 shares issued. Unfortunatelly, the piece is undated but we would guess it dates from before the French Revolution. The company offered shipping freight services from Paris to le Havre, overseas and return. It may have had two fleets - one of river-barges, drawn by horse or steam-tugs, along the Seine, then a sea-going fleet, with the freight transshipped at le Havre. At this date its routes from le Havre may have been of short distances : England, Holland, Germany. The small capital of 300.000 FRF does not suggest a large ocean-going fleet. Printed on vellum. Only piece of which we know.
