Zoological Stock Certificates

As a measure to improve its economic base the Berlin zoo in 1845 was granted the legal form of a joint stock company, a form it has maintained to the present day. And with the exception of a single stock certificate owned by the State of Berlin, the other 3,999 are widely dispersed in private ownership.

I can not find out much about this certificate, which is sure a beauty.  Anybody know anymore about it?

Seems to be linked with a dutch stock exchange certificate...

Oops! Sorry, I didn't read enough precisely the comment on the top... Sure you know it's a stock certificate!
