    Muncie, IN- Fort Wayne & Southern Rail Road Co. 4 Shares Sep. 16, 1856 PCGS Extremely Fine 40.
    The railroad was chartered in 1849 by the state legislature but never laid a rail according to most sources, completing only 63 miles of grading and other route preparations. Nonetheless through a long series of financial transaction, the railroad lives on as part of today's Norfolk-Southern Railway. An attractive banknote-size stock certificate for four shares, this certificate features a large vignette of a passenger train approaching a large city flanked by portraits of Franklin and an unidentified man. PCGS notes a small edge tear at top let and some very minor ink erosion, neither of which provide much distraction from this very rare example. This is the first time we have offered one of these certificates in one of our auctions.
