THE CHAMPION of CHICAGO. This is indeed the all time Champion of Chicago transit stock certificates. It has absolutely everything – everything a collector or art lover could possibly want, such as.. It is a 100% original and genuine stock certificate issued by the Chicago City and Connecting Railways in 1914. It is gargantuan in size (over 9″ x 13″), imprinted four times with the high denomination of 100 Shares. It is in nearly flawless condition. Although fully issued and hand signed by 3 Officers, it remains uncancelled and without a single notable blemish. It is extremely rare and historic. It is one of the most handsomely engraved certificates ever created by the American Bank Note Co. The ultra ornate border dances with vibrant detail, perfectly framing the super Art Deco title and massive vignette (steel etched illustration). Said vignette offers a panoramic view of urban Chicago in 1914 literally crawling with superb old trolley cars coming and going hither and yon. If our count is correct, there are at least EIGHT of them, and they are surrounded by elegant buildings, streetlamps, vintage cars, pedestrians, and a very detailed motorcycle! If this doesn’t make you nostalgic for the Chicago street life a century ago then you aren’t a candidate for time travel (you can still frame this gem and display it under spotlights for others to be transported to an earlier time). We hate to part with this one but hope that it finds a new owner that will love it as much as we have. It’s got it ALL – bona fide antiquity, fantastic artistry, size, condition, rarity and Chicago Charm!
