Punch cancelled. This company was controlled by the New York Central RR and in competition with the Pullman Co. for sleeping car patrons. This stock is signed by W. S.

There are a number of small cancellation holes in body of certificate and block cancellations in the signatures which is typical of most of the Wagner Palace Co, certificates. Nice certificate from a company offering a means of travel now gone. Wagner became a part of Pullman Company on Jan 1,1900.
