DescriptionIver Krueger - Gronlandet Sodra (Sweden)
A 1920 certificate for 100 Kroner in brown and black. Litho with one page of coupons. This certificate is signed by both Iver Krueger, more popularly known as the "Match King", as well as Paul Toll, who would later combine with Krueger as Krueger and Toll.
In the early 1900's Krueger, a Swedish promoter, formed the Swedish Match Company, which would grow to become a giant international match empire that owned factories, forests and mines. The company operated match factories in roughly 40 countries and at its peak manufactured most of the world's matches. The stock market crash of 1929 led to a weakening of Krueger's influence and he eventually died by his own hand in 1932. The Swedish Match Company, however, survived and operated under a new management. The Gronlandet Sodra was an early Krueger Company which, among other things, constructed the stadium used in the 1924 Olympic games. This is a wonderful certificate associating the "Match King" with his partner Paul Toll. Uncancelled. New.
