Certificate for forty-two shares of the Green Bay & Western Railroad
It has an interesting vignette of a locomotive and a man on horseback.
The stock certificate was signed by City Bank Farmers Trust Company on April 12,
1946 -- exactly eighty years to the day after the charter
of the original Green Bay & Lake Pepin Railway was granted!
My certificate was for 42 shares. Certificates for round lots of 100
shares were similar in layout, but were green, as in this 1949
certificate for 100 shares.
