Document Signed, "W.W.Wrigley" 11' x 8-1/2", 10 shares, dec. 2, 1925, orange border, near fine. Wrigley sold toothpaste and pharmaceutical products that tried to capitalize on the success of his cousin's chewing gum company. The company would sell two tubes of toothpaste and 10 shares of stock for $10. The office and exhibit were on the Atlantic City Boardwalk near the Million Dollar Pier. In 1926, Wrigley Pharmaceutical was brought up on charges by the Pennsylvania Banking Commission. It was later revealed that they had sold over 300,00 bogus shares. In 1935, the Post Office won a case against the officers for intent to defraud.
