    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.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
