    Description

    Coca-Cola Company (Delaware)
    A scarce early certificate issued by the Coca-Cola Company for 40 shares of Class A Stock. Blue/Black. Coca Cola was invented in 1886 by John Smythe Pemberton, an Atlanta Pharmacist, who originally intended it as a general health drink. By 1891 the business was in the hands of Asa Candler, who realized the potential of the beverage as a simple soda fountain drink which would appeal to a mass market. By 1895 the drink was available in every state in the country. When this certificate was issued the Candler family had liquidated their shares for $25 million. Coca Cola has now become a world wide symbol of the United States. A few minor staple holes are present. Lightly punch cancelled Very Fine.
