I haven't posted any stocks and bonds for a while, so here's a new topic -- sugar companies! I was surprised at how many I had when I started looking.

Granulated sugar didn't appear until around the 1890s but once it became a household commodity sugar production and demand spiked. Sugar companies expanded throughout the 20th Century as their stock went public.

And what became of all this cheap sugar?

The first sugar cane harvest vignette, shown above, appeared on several banknotes.

A partial vignette on a Cuban note:

Why did they use perferations?

Another slightly larger partial vignette on a note from The Republic of Hawaii:

and even on a souvenir card:

Here are some more vignettes of sugar cane.

From the Central Bank of Alabama:

This looks like sugar cane in the other vignette?

And, sugar at the wharf to make it look pretty.

My only sugar type vignettes are all the Cuba ones you have -

but still - pretty sweet

Those mules sure look unnerved. Must be all the smoke from burning the field.

I'll add this, even though it's not a stock and it's not one I own (or probably ever will). But it's one of my favorite Bureau engravings. This is a specimen from the Smithsonian's collection of BEP certified proofs.
