TORINO. 1 Azione da L.100. brown. # 220000. No 31. Large format. A very attractive and interesting FIAT share. Although of course best known as a car- and truck-manufacturer, FIAT has had a wide range of other activities, such as aircraft, railway trains, marine engines and tractors. A little-known side of FIAT is that covered by this share - building submarines. The business started in 1905 as FIAT Muggiano, but the name was changed to FIAT San Giorgio in 1906. At the same time the control of this division was moved from Torino to Genova, where the submarines were built. The share shows a huge vignette of a submarine at sea, also ropes, anchor, ship's wheel, propeller, compass, etc. Extremely rare.
