Beautiful 100 share stock certificate from the Metropolitan Errand & Carrier Express Co. issued in 1856. This historic document was printed by Baldwin, Bald, and Cousland & Co. - New York and has an ornate border around it with a vignette of a young boy with a small package chases a horse drawn express wagon which is racing a dog. . This item has the signatures of the Company’s President, Abraham M. Hinkley and Secretary, Hiram Dixon. XF

Scarce and of great interest to scripophilists and philatelists, as Metropolitan Errand and Carrier Express Company issued a variety of local stamps (see Scott 107L1-107U1). is a name you can TRUST!
