Lot of 4, two varieties. Inc. in Iowa. Three issued for one share in 1896 and one issued in 1901. All signed by Holman as president and White as secretary. Not cancelled. Interesting design made to look like currency. Black or green borders and print, locomotive vignette. Printed by EA Wright, Philadelphia. 3.5 x 8.5". Very good condition. The Holman Locomotive Speeding Truck Company was a scam in the 1890's where the company made false claims of a locomotive with increased speed by using a special design of its wheels.
