I came across this today. It’s 8 shares of stock in the “Mathie-Ruder Brewing Company” of Wausau, Wisconsin previously owned by my great-grandfather Edwin F. Schmidt.
I remember pulling this out of my great-grandfather’s house when I was a kid. My grandmother, my cousin, and I had gone up to Rothschild, Wisconsin to help clean out my great-grandmother’s home when she was moving to a retirement community. I was probably about 12 years old at the time. I had no idea I still had the certificate until I found it in an envelope today in my storage area. It is dated 16 Jun 1936 and is signed by John L. Opperman (secretary) and John Ringle Jr. (president).
