Beautifully engraved RARE Specimen certificate from the National Biscuit Company printed in 1900. This historic document was printed by Western Bank Note and has an
ornate border around it with a vignette of an eagle and parrot flanking the title. This is the first time we have seen this certificate for sale and it is possibly unique.
The National Biscuit Company was formed in 1898 as a result of a merger between the New York Biscuit Company in the east and the American Biscuit & Manufacturing Company in Chicago. The company's were competitors which sold graham crackers, lemon drops, oyster crackers and gingersnaps. The company incorporated in New Jersey because that state was especially hospitable to companies seeking mergers. The corporation merged 114 bakeries with 400 ovens and the capacity to consume 2,000,000 barrels of flour a year, and to produce 360,000,000 pounds of crackers annually.
