    John D. Rockefeller and Henry M. Flagler Standard Oil Trust Autographed Stock John D. Rockefeller (1839-1937), industrialist, philanthropist. Rockefeller formed the first oil trust at the age of 30. He monopolized 85% of the industry and became the world's first billionaire. He hated waste and would target poorly run segments of the industry, driving poorly run competition out of business. He became the most detested man in the country and had a bodyguard continuously. Rockefeller gave 3/4 of a billion dollars to science and education. In one of the first public relations campaigns in history, Rockefeller would give a shiny new dime to whomever he would meet. Rockefeller signs along with Henry M. Flagler, capitalist and promoter. Rockefeller once stated in court that Flagler was "the brains behind the Standard Oil Trust." He transformed Florida into one of the most luxurious playgrounds in the world. This rare 100 share stock of 1887 has signatures that are very lightly cut cancelled and are superb. The eye appeal is outstanding. The signature of Rockefeller is especially large and bold. Nice portraits are included. Exceptional for many reasons. Excellent condition. So very rare with all these qualities. Accompanied by COA from PSA/DNA.
