LUSSIN GRANDE. Azione 50 Fiorini. Serie A. black. No 279. Formed 1857 to build and operate a shipping company on the Adriatic island of Losinj (then under the Austrian Empire, and known by the Italian name of Lussin Grande. Today part of Croatia). On account of competition from Trieste, the company did not last long. Already by the 1860s it seems to have disappeared from records; it had paid interest only for two years, to 1858. Most decorative design, with views of the anchors, oars, Neptune and sea-creatures. A very rare, early and attractive shipping share.
