ANVERS. POSTEL-MOL. Titre de F1000. Serie 1. blue, black. #2800. No 1870. Folds and some edge-damage with one repaired tear. Large-format share, printed on fine paper, decorated with small engraving of landscape and bee-hive. The company was formed in 1847 to improve agriculture in the at that time poor and little populated Campine region, east of Antwerp, covering part of the Belgian provinces Limburg and Antwerp as well as the Dutch province Noord-Brabant. The land is of sand and clay, and of low agricultural potential. The company, established at Postel, in the communeof Mol, aimed to cultivate the land to produce wheat and fruit, and to encourage bee-keeping. All these products are shown on the certificate. The first stage, however, was to do some land clearance, and cut and sell the timber and turf. Probably the earliest piece from 'La Campine' or 'De Kempen' we have ever seen.
