    Description

    John D. Rockefeller Stock Certificate Document Signed A possibly unique Standard Oil Trust certificate with no cancellations of any kind through the signature of John D. Rockefeller or the other signers; Henry M. Flagler and Benjamin Brewster. On every other certificate we have encountered, the signature of Rockefeller has been machine canceled, or canceled with a pen line through the signature, or has had both forms of cancellations. A partly engraved document for 100 shares, 15.5" x 7.75", New York, December 31, 1885. This certificate is the scarce variety in brown, black and white with an engraved vignette of the U.S. Capitol building. The stub is attached with a form for transfer on the reverse. A Rockefeller certificate that has not been signature canceled is certainly rare. When a stock was sold the signatures on the certificate were canceled. It would be an extremely remote error in processing of a certificate for this not to be done. Very fine condition with excellent dark signatures. Accompanied by LOA from PSA/DNA.
