Beautifully engraved certificate from the National Carbon Company issued in 1914. This historic document was printed by American Bank Note Company and has an ornate border around it with a vignette of an allegorical man and woman flanking a shield. This item is hand signed by the Company's officers and is over 101 years old.

In 1906, National Carbon Company which had supplied Eveready with materials for their batteries, bought a half interest in the company for $200,000. Hubert remained president and there was little change in the general policies of the company. The name was changed to "The American Ever Ready Company" and the trade name was shortened to one word - Eveready.

The National Carbon Company was founded in 1886 by the then Brush Electric Company executive W. H. Lawrence, whom later was instrumental in forming the General Electric Company. The company would supply carbon items needed in electrical devices such as carbon-arc electrodes, motor brushes and rods used in carbon-zinc batteries. In 1914, American Ever Ready became part of Nation Carbon Company now forming a manufacturer specializing in both batteries and lighting products.

In 1917 National Carbon Company merged with Union Carbide to form The Union Carbide and Carbon Co. and Eveready began using the name "DAYLO". The logo on the battery cap was changed to read "EVEREADY DAYLO". Daylo was never well accepted. The main reason for the non-acceptance was that only Eveready could use Daylo. The public still used the word "flashlight" and all other flashlight making companies called their products "flashlights". The advertising campaign was a success but the name was a dud. The Daylo name was dropped in 1921.
