Mario Boone - Auction 55

BEKSA was jointly set up by Sabanci and the Belgian Bekaert company 
in Turkey for the production of steel cordThe auction contains 
several specimens from the Sabanci business empire
Seeing this BEKSA share certificate brings back some nice memories. 
Ten years ago, I had the opportunity to visit the plant in Izmit.

The certificate on the cover is a 1778 share of 1000 Livres in the Compagnie de la Guyane.
The company was granted a monopoly concession for trading slaves by the King of France.
The share belonged to Jean Lafaurie (1914-2008), the former Conservateur of the 
Cabinet de Medailles of the National Library in Paris.
