Guarantees Payment of your Accounts Receivables” is printed at bottom center.

Professionally framed in the original antique wood frame under glass with the original old aged nails holding the frame’s backing in place.  The piece is in great vintage condition throughout showing age with some expected paper yellowing and a couple of ubobtrusive water spots that are commensurate with advanced age.

Started in 1893, American Credit Indemnity Company is the oldest insurer of this type in the world.  It writes approximately 70 percent of the business credit insurance in North America, covering more than $70 billion of annual sales. The company is licensed in all 50 U.S. states and in several Canadian provinces, and operates through offices located throughout the U.S. and Canada. In early 1997, ACI acquired Trade Indemnity Canada (a Euler affiliate), adding to its asset position and bolstering its already significant market leadership in North America.
