1912 International Gordon Bennett Race Membership Certificate sponsored by Aero Club of America and Aero Club of Illinois. Beautiful scripophily certificate with vignette of race trophy, early aeroplane and three winners of prior races. The first Gordon Bennett race was held in Rheims, France in 1909 and won by Glenn Curtis. Subsequent races won by Claude Grahame-White in 1910 and Charles Terres Weymann in 1911. EF condition.
Purchasing Notes: Payment by check or PayPal. You can opt out of insurance, which I generally recommend. Ruby Lane strongly encourages insurance. However, this may not make sense on scripophily shipments (which are not exactly breakable). My experience in mailing thousands of packages is that less than one out of 500 packages does not arrive in good condition. Still, Insurance is recommended on orders over $100. On multiple certificate orders Ruby Lane does not compute the insurance charge correctly. I will correct overpayments, but it is best to get accurate order amount before paying. Do not hesitate to email me if you have any questions.
