SPITSBERGEN. ROTTERDAM. Aandeel Fl.50. green. # 100000. No 99307. Coal was discovered in the Norway's Arctic Archipelago of Svalbard/Spitzbergen in 1910. A dispute with Russia over ownership was resolved in favour of Norway, but Russia had rights to mine coal there, along with Norwegian companies, and one Netherlands company - this one. However, the company withdrew from the islands before WW2. Stamps on the face reflect capital repayments.
