Title : Certificaet N° 40..
Map maker : UNITED STATES..
Date : Antwerp, 30 march 1791.
Size : 9.9 x 7.6 inches. / 25.2 x 19.4 cm.
Colouring : Uncoloured.

Description :1000 guilder Dutch Certificaet number 40 of 200 issued. 1791. This certificate represented a 1/200 interest in $ 130,000 face amount of United States "Liquidated Debt" securities, most likely 6 percent state or United States final settlement certificates.
Dutch financiers and their American counterparts from 1785 to 1792 scrambled to buy up the deeply discounted 6 percent finals, then made additional representations (guaranteeing interest payments at a certain level for ten to fifteen years), marked the price up significantly, and then sold Certificate interests to the Dutch and Flemish public. These Dutch investment trust buyers first demonstrated the value and credibility of investing in United States securities.

Karel Jan Michiel de Wolf (1747-1806) was married to a "de Proli" a very well known family in the history of the Commercial Trading Companies of the 18th Century.

Revolutionary War transatlantic paper was first designed to accommodate the growing relationship with the U.S. allies in Europe, primarily France, but to a lesser extant Holland and Spain. Most of the financial instruments created were bills of exchange, but a few special pay orders for returning prisoners of war or receipts for the consolidated American debt to France were used.
