Neat sugar stock certificate collectible. Plain certificate detailed printing throughout. Issued and cancelled. Dated 1922. Great historical document.
Incorporated in New Jersey (later reincorporated in Maryland) in 1895, the company operated in Cuba and sold sugar in the United States. With offices in Jersey City NJ, the company was engaged in the purchasing, refining, selling, dealing in, and manufacturing sugar of all kinds and all products of sugar cane. The business operated the plantation Central Teresa in Ceiba Hueca, Manzanillo on the island of Cuba.
