Beautifully engraved Certificate from the famous Freed-Eisemann Radio Corporationissued in 1929. This historic document was printed by the Hamilton Banknote Company and has an ornate border around it with a vignette of an angel. This item is hand signed by the company's president (Joseph Freed) and secretary (Arthur Freed) and is over 71 years old. Joseph David Roth Freed organized the Radio Manufacturing Company in 1921. Freed's first product was a crystal set called the Marvel. Needing capital to expand, Freed and his brother's employer, Alexander Eisemann, incorporated the Freed-Eisemann Radio Corporation in 1922. Legal issues regarding patent rights for crystal radio technology caused problems and sales declined until 1923 when production was shifted to the new circuitry designed by Alan Hazeltine. This new approach became known as the Neutrodyne. Less expensive radios produced by Atwater Kent and Freshman eroded the companies market for expensive, high end radios. Assets were auctioned off in 1930. The Freed brothers started other companies that produced radios with some variation of the Freed-Eisemann name through the 1940s.
