Tai Seng Opium Company
The company was licensed to trade in opium for 5 years from 1918 to 1923 on payment of an annual licence fee of 6,676,000 dolars which seems an enormous figure even for a business that had been banned by European Governments. The company appear to have made some losses and repaid part of the capital only. Capital in shares of 200 silver dollars.
