ARCHANGEL. Share of 200 Rbls. brown, black. No 6471. Folds, some small edge-splits and somewhat browned paper. Company founded 1897, to provide a shipping service bestween Archangel and Murmansk. The company was reorganized in 1916 and its capital was increased to 1,8 mio. roubles, as evidenced by this share. At that moment, it also opened a new river service to Kotlas. The main purpose of the company was to ship Siberian grain that had come by rail to Kotlas from Kotlasto Archangel on the Northern Dvina River. The first steamship with grain left Archangel for Europe in 1899. The company was nationalised in the winter of 1918. First time we see scripophily from this company. A unique discovery.
