    John D. Rockefeller Standard Oil Trust Stock Certificate Signed. One page, 16" x 7.75", New York City, May 25, 1888. Magnificent engraved stock certificate for 100 shares of Standard Oil Trust stock. John D. Rockefeller organized Standard Oil Co. in 1870, gained a monopoly in the oil business and organized the Standard Oil Trust in 1882. It was dissolved by court decree in 1892.

    We offer a very impressive document, engraved in black and brown ink, issued in the name of A. J. Pouch, one of the trustees of the company. The intricate borders and engraved corner decorations of this handsome issue are offset by a large vignette of the Washington Capitol building at upper center. Engraved by Franklin Bank Note Company and boldly signed by H. M Flagler as secretary and J. D. Rockefeller as president.

    Verso is equally attractive with a completed section entitled "For Value Received," which documents the sale of these shares to one Ephriam S. Force. Accompanied by a bust print image and biographical information about Rockefeller. Suitable for prominent display! Very fine condition.
