Frank Sente wrote a post on a dramatic Sharp & Bryan memorandum of sale in 2011.  The gear-style cancel above differs from the ovals on Frank's memorandum.

Sharp & Bryan was organized in 1891 and for a number of years traded for the interests of J. P. Morgan.  In 1903, The New York Times reported the firm went into assignment, a form or required bankruptcy, after losses in the market in the stock of Virginia-Carolina Chemical Company.
