Puzzling scripophily - No. 2

Dear Miss Marple and M. Hercule Poirot,
We are looking for a particular company. The following three visual clues will help you solve this puzzle. These are details from one of the company's share certificates.

  • How to take part ? Submit your replies in the comments section of this post, or in any other way.
  • What's in it for you ? The first correct answer yields eternal fame.  

That's all I can say for the moment. 

Yours truly 


  1. Maybe SKF, Svenska Kullagerfabriken (Swedish Ball-bearing Factory)?
    One of the signatures is engineer/inventor Sven Wingqvist (1876 to 1953), a founder and CEO of SKF.
    Both signatures appear on a 1950 SKF share cert but not the under-printed aeroplane profile.
    So, if not SKF, perhaps Svenska Flygmotor (Swedish Aircraft Engine) where Wingquist was CEO 1941 to 1953?

  2. Great attempt David ! You are close
