Het gebouw werd gezien als de apotheose van de Nederlandse ijzerarchitectuur. In 1856 werden 5000 aandelen uitgegeven van f 200, waarvan jaarlijks 100 aandelen zouden worden uitgeloot à f 250 met bovendien een kans op een extra premie. Nadien werden in 1867 en 1869 premieleningen uitgegeven van beide f 1 miloen, verdeeld in  aandelen van respectievelijk  f 10 en f 2,50. Aan de houders van hypothecaire schuldbrieven werden ook nog 2774 actions de jouissance verstrekt. Het gebouw brandde  in 1929 volledig af.

Compagnie des Installations Maritimes de Bruges, Action privilegie de 500 Fr au porteur (= preferred share to bearer), Bruges 1904, multicolored / veelkleurig, # = 9000.
The tiny shield above the bear can be blue or brown. Brown shields I have seen on series beginning with 1000, 2000, 4000, 5000 and 6000; blue shields on series beginning with 7000 and 8000. Therefore I presume that the colour of the shield changed from brown to blue at a number near 7000, making the shares with blue shields the rarer type of the two.
According to the text on the shares, another 9000 ordinary shares must also have been issued, but I have never come across one of those.

Have a look at one of the most beautiful stocks in the world !,  It depicts an elegant lady (figure-head) holding a light torch, a bird's eye view of the inland port of Bruges, and 3 sights of the city of Bruges:
left: The old harbour = The Minerva Water (het Minerva water) with defence tower ""de Poermolen"
right: Basilica of the Holy Blood (Basiliek van het Heilige Bloed)
middle: The Peerdenbrug (Horse bridge; in front) and the Meebrug (in the back).
Bruges was a port in the Middle Ages, but the Gulf of  Zwijn, giving it access to the sea, silted up and cut it off from the sea.
The company was founded in 1895, with the approval of the Government of Flanders and the city of Bruges, to construct the port installations of Heyst-sur-Mer (today - Zeebrugge) and the inland port of Bruges. It was also required to build a canal, to link the two towns. This Baldwin Canal (Boudewijn kanaal), first planned in 1545, was dug from 1895 to 1907. It was 10 km long, 70m wide and 8m deep. It ran in a straight line across the Flanders plain. The new harbour was inaugurated by King Leopold on July 23rd 1907. The company's concession also gave the right to operate the port installations for a period of 75 years. At the expiry of this period, the term was extended, and the operating company still exists today.
Bruges is nowadays one of the most beautiful and  excellently preserved historic cities in Europe.

This investment company may be the successor of Capital Growth Fund, registered  in the Bahamas under New providence Securities Ltd.
I sometimes receive questions of persons who inherited or bought shares in this company and want to know if they still have any economic value. I don't think they have and that mr. Mc.

See our separate page for more information on this company and related ones. I take it that these certificates are now just collector's items, especially because of their beautiful sailship, printed in gold relief.

Compagnie Universelle du Canal Interocéanique de Panama, S.A. au Capital de 300 millions de Francs

Societé Civile d'Amortissement des obligations du Canal de Panama Émission de Mars 1888, avec responsabilité limitée à la mise sociale

(with facsimile signature of Ferdinant de Lesseps, famous builder of the Suez Canal. in Egypt).

Design of the shares and bonds (based on the book by Grigore (1997), see below):
The 21 by 40 cm light blue stock certificate was engraved by A. Stern, Paris,and printed by Société Anonyme de Publications Periodique - Imprimerie P. Mouillot, 13 Quai Voltaire, Paris, Their names are centered below the portrait of the certificate. But it is not known who designed the stock certificate. This portrait measures 117 mm x 167 mm from border to border and its thematic vignette reveals the Western Hemisphere in a partial globe of the world; two reclining bare-busted maidens allegorically depicting North and South America, clasping hands across a sea-level Panama Canal, with a ship exiting from the Cut; and a steamship in the lower corners. n the left and right columns is a telegraph pole, partially screened by palm fronds, on which there are affixed three banners listing countries of the world that would benefit from uniting the Atlantic and Pacific Ocenans via the Isthmus of Panama. Clasping the base of the left pole is a white and Asian child, implying the West's trade with the east. Atv the right pole is a white and black child, implying the West's trade with Africa. Telegraph poles support a large, single banner on which is cited the legal authority for the bond's issue, its capitalization, its title, intent, type, and serial number.

History (based on the book by Grigore (1997), see below):
Although the issue of the shares in 1880 was probably all with good and honest intentions, the entire undertaking ended up in the greatest engineering and financial disaster, followed by the worst political scandal, the world had ever known. It was an embarrassment to France. But, at the beginning of this undertaking Ferdinand de Lesseps, builder of the Suez canal (finished in 1869), which halved the journey time from Europe to the Indies, was the world’s most decorated and honored personage. He was compared to Columbus. In 1879 France was a rich nation and hubristic overconfident in what it could achieve, with its colonies, technological developments, science and art, boasting of luminaries such as Victor Hugo, de Lesseps, Pasteur, Eiffel and Sarah Bernhardt. Unfortunately the world’s largest commercial enterprise was fatally destined to become the most disastrous financial failure the world had ever seen.

The issue of the blue shares in 1880 is the only issue of shares in the company actually placed (an 1879 share issue was cancelled). Beyond that many bonds were issued.

The march 1888 bond issue was placed only to the extend of 25,7 %, even worse than the june 1888 bond (40,1%), but not as bad as the july 1889 lottery bond (13,1%), but that was after the company had ceased its operations. Only 89.890 bonds were placed in march 1888, by far the smallest number placed of all bond issues. Much less are available for collectors these days. It are rare pieces, really.

The company ceased operations on December 14th 1888. On february 4th 1889 the companies’ bankruptcy plea was accepted. The canal was less than 40% dug at a cost of an estimated 22.000 deaths and an expenditure of about $ 1,400,000,000 in today’s (1997) currency. It has been repeatedly reported that one third of this vast amount was spent on canal work, one third was wasted and one third was stolen.

It was the worst financial catastrophe ever suffered by the French people. As a consequence, the French Government’s prestige throughout the world was shattered.

In 1904 the United States Government purchaased all the assets and rights necessary for it to complete the Panama Canal, what they finally achieved in 1914.

History
English: Béla Egger, owner of a telegraph equipment factory in Vienna, founded a general partnership company with the name: First Austro-Hungarian Electric-lighting and Power Transmission Factory in 1882. They established an electro-technology factory in Huszár utca. Here they produced several hundred incandescent lamps every day. In 1896, the grown-up company was transformed into a joint stock company under the name of United Incandescent Lamp and Electrical Co. Ltd. (EIVRT) or in short form: TUNGSRAM Co. Ltd., the same as the brand name. The name and the form of company remained, even after nationalisation in order that the markets be kept. The American General Electric Company obtained a majority of shares in the company in 1990 and since then the company's name has been GE Lighting Tungsram Co. Ltd.
Nederlands: Béla Egger, eigenaar van een telegraaf apparatuur fabriek in Wenen, richtte in 1882 een bedrijf op met de naam: Eerste elektrische Oostenrijks-Hongaarse verlichting en Electriciteits-leiding fabriek. Ze stichtten een electro-technologie-fabriek in Huszár utca. Hier produceerden ze elke dag meerdere honderden gloeilampen In 1896werd het volwassen bedrijf omgevormd tot een naamloze vennootschap onder de naam Verenigde gloeilampen en elektronica Co. Ltd. (EIVRT) of in korte vorm: TUNGSRAM Co. Ltd., hetzelfde als de merknaam. De naam en de vorm van vennootschap bleef, ook na de nationalisatie, zodat de markten behouden bleven. De American General Electric Company verkreeg in 1990 een meerderheid van de aandelen in het bedrijf en de bedrijfsnaam is sindsdien GE verlichting Tungsram Co. Ltd.

On the share the name of the city is written with a w at the end. Ekaterinoslav, also known as Katerinoslav, Catherinoslav, or Yekaterinoslav, means "the glory of Catherine", referring to Empress Catherine the Great. This - at one time - 3rd largest city in Russia, after Moskow and St. Persburg, was founded in 1776 in what is now Oekraïne. In 1926 the name was changed to Dnepropetrovsk. It is a major city along de Djnepper river, with heavy industry, in Oekraïne.
Dnepropetrovsk was named after communist leader Grigory Petrovsky. As communist propaganda is forbidden by law since May 2015, the name of the city will be changed soon as well as all other places and streets the names of which refer to communist leaders.
Donetz was one of the 14 districts of the "Province" of Ekaterinoslav and also the name of a large city. The Donetz is a river (= smaller river Don) that ran through Donetz, I don't know why the factory was called Donetz as Donetz and Ekaterinoslav are located far apart. Perhaps it was a way of acknowledging that the steel industry was made posiible by the finding -in the late 19th century - of the Donetsk coal deposits and the Krivoy Rog iron ore, in an area called the Donetsk Basin. Anno 2015 these areas seek independance from or within Oekraïne. Dnepropetrovsk was "the closed rocket city" , unaccessable for foreighners from 1959 until 1987: it was the city where the Sovjet Union's ballistic missiles, rocket engines and the space industry flourished in secrecy.
