ILLINOIS. CHICAGO. Cert. of 5 shares of $100. green, black. No 104. Repaired tears. Vignette of a teacher and his pupil. The panopticum was located on Wabash Avenue 76, Chicago. The company rented the venue for 89 years at a cost of $40,000. Yet, we are not certain the project ever came off the ground as we can find very little info. A panopticum is of course an exhibition of wax statues (e.g. Madame Tussauds in London). Extremely rare.
