Description


Stock certificate for shares in the explosives manufacturing firm founded by Alfred Nobel, Nitroglycerin Aktiebolaget, three pages on two adjoining sheets, 9 x 11.5, issued on March 31, 1937, to Swedish business magnate Marcus Wallenberg. The second page logs the transfer of ownership of the shares from in 1944. In fine condition, with two punch holes at center.

In 1888, Swedish chemist Alfred Nobel—famed as the inventor of dynamite—was shocked to read his own obituary in a French newspaper: 'The Merchant of Death is Dead,' the headline read, ‘Dr. Alfred Nobel, who became rich by finding ways to kill more people faster than ever before, died yesterday.’ This prompted him to secretly rewrite his will so that he would be remembered otherwise, dedicating his fortune to the establishment of a prize to honor those who have conferred great benefits upon mankind.
