JOHN D. ROCKEFELLER
(1839 - 1937) American industrialist and philanthropist who organized Standard Oil and virtually monopolized the industry until he was forced by a Supreme Court ruling to dissolve the company and break it up into regional producers and refiners. Scarce D.S., a handsomely engraved four-share stock certificate for the Standard Oil Trust, 1p., oblong legal folio, New York, June 16, 1887. The certificate, engraved in green, black and white, features a vignette of the U.S. Capitol building. Certificate also signed by HENRY M. FLAGLER. Flagler was associated with Rockefeller in the development of the Standard Oil Company and later organized the Florida East Coast Railway. Light creases, signatures crossed by an embossing, non-ink cancellation rather than hand cancellation, and as a result the signatures are quite clear. Very good.
Estimate $ 2,000-2,500
