Bearer cert. for 10 Shares of £1. red, black. No 6. Folds. Text in English and French, but company name also in Chinese. Decorative border with flowers, and dragons in design. We have seen a map of China, apparently showing the railway lines to be build by the company. They run from Hankow, which was perhaps to be the centre of the company's rail operations in China. They included Hankow to Nanking, to Foochow and Wenchow, to Chungking and to Si-Ngan - a very extensive network indeed. However, since the company was deleted from the London Register in 1902 (only 2 years after formation), we can assume that the company never operated in any way. We have no info on what the company's mining intentions were. This denomination has to the best of our knowledge never been seen before.
