Description

    Edward H. Harriman - Peoria, Decatur & Evansville Railway Company (Illinois)
    An 1881 dated certificate in green and black for 100 shares issued to E.H. Harriman & Co. and signed on the verso for the company by Edward H. Harriman. Harriman was known for his genius in developing and reinvesting in railroads. His stock market battle for control of the Northern Pacific against the combination of J. Pierpont Morgan and James J. Hill remains one of Wall Street's great wars. A true financial wizard, Harriman was known as the "Napoleon of Wall Street." Very Fine with punch and stamp cancellations not affecting Harriman's signature.
