So from what i gather its some sort of last will and testiment from around the turn of the century.
Still not 100% sure of everything about it. Certainly cool tho. Im taking it to an auction house tuesday. Hoping i get more info and perhaps a value.

I cant read what looks to be handwritten. But from what I can read and see clearly this looks to be a certificate of shares, or stocks and bonds. Very interesting find. Would love to hear what the Auction House brings this.

Here are some links concerning that company. Seems they ended up canceling their contract with the Brazilian Government. So the stocks may only be worth as an antiquity, rather than cash face value:

onroadtravel.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=45:explore-manaus&catid=3:newsflash

And here is the link concerning the stock itself. Not sure how accurate this is since it states that all stocks were paid in full between 1903 - 1913. And this stock was made sometime in 1911.

lol. Its one of the things you should do when you find something that your not sure about. Especially if it has some sort of markings, letters, numbers, or words. Dont always take what someone else tells you about it with complete face value. Not everyone is honest about things. Some people will try and screw you out a few dollars and more if given the chance. :)

Ok, I took your challenge, even though I knew it would be kind of pointless, at least for me, with out any other information. Germany has made alot of different carving forks with stag antlers. Given teh date can be a good sign. But still makes it hard since like I said, Germany has alot of different companies and trades that made steak knives, forks, carving forks, and the like. Is there any other kind of markings on them, other than the design. (Which is where it would be hard for me, but others that really know their antique cultrey items. Those designs can be keys, since most makers have there own unique, or several unique styles of making their silverware stand out.
