1) Truly a magnificent cert is # 1 of the Pig'n Whistle Corporation. In 1927, movie theatres didn't have concession counters inside their lobbies. A family restaurant and soda fountain opened up next door to the Egyptian Theatre, where movie-goers could have a meal before or after seeing the film was one of Hollywood's most renowned eateries - the world-famous Pig'n Whistle! Connected to the forecourt of the Egyptian Theatre by a side entrance, The Pig'n Whistle quickly became the place for stars to gather after movie premieres and discuss the "industry" over cocktails. Household names like Cary Grant, Jane Wyman or Walter Pidgeon could often be spotted at The Pig'n Whistle. This cert has an eagle vignette - the later certs had a pig playing a flute. Cancelled. Fading. 2) Mary Lincoln Candy Company. # 1989 for 2 shares. Allegorical vignette. Brown version. The Mary Lincoln Candy Company opened in 1916 in Buffalo, New York.
