A rare Russian forest industry share certificate of the 1850’s. The company built a sawmill in Joensuu in the Grand Duchy of Finland in 1861. The mill was one of the very first ones in the whole Finland. The sawmill was bankrupted six years later and it was sold to the commercial house of Tichanoff in 1868 and further to Hackmans in 1876. The owner of the certificate is Mr. colonel D. I. Ustinov and the share is transferred in Helsinki in 1870. There is a monument of the old sawmill at the site of the company in Joensuu, North Karelia.
