Netherlands. Partly printed document. Signed by Egbert Thisinger, Arnoldus Dix, Christoffel Brants, Nicolaas Warin and Leonard Van Hoesen. A partial translation of Dutch into English reads "We, entrusted with the raising of a sum of sixty-five thousand Guilders, which is required to maintain and continue the Moscow Trade, having received authorization, acknowledge herewith, in this function by decree of the honorable gentlemen of the States General of the United Netherlands on March 27 of the year 1717..." In order to promote, maintain and protect trade with Russia, the Dutch formed the Muscovy Trading Company which obtained a monopoly to collect, duties on all trading goods that were shipped to and from Russia (the duty was 0.5%). This monopoly was granted by Czar Peter who was in Amsterdam in 1717 and agreed to the formation of the Muscovy Trading Company. Choice VF condition. (John E. Herzog Collection)
