In my blog of Aug. 7, I presented a collection of stock and bond certificates that feature a male allegorical figure that I call the near-naked scientist.
Since that presentation I have found only one additional example, shown here.
Pacific Telephone and Telegraph Co., 1967
This is the only example of Security-Columbian's toga-clad scientist that I've seen on a large-format (about 15-1/4" x 22-1/4") bond certificate. The bond is in the amount of $5,000, payable in 35 years with interest at an annual rate of 4-5/8%. The male figure holds in telephone handset in his right hand, with a length of phone cord in his right. At his right is an early piece of phone equipment. There are a number of other telephone-related vignettes in the upper and lower corners.
