Beautiful certificate from the Manhattan Automatic Merchandising Company
issued in 1907. This historic document has an
ornate border around it with a vignette of the company's plant. This item has the signatures of the Company's President, W. MacEven and Secretary, Arthur Plowman and is over 102 years old. The certificate we have is the same design as certificate in scan, but this one is dated 1907 and it doesn't have any stamps attached to the face.
