This may be unique in private hands. The United States Mint in Philadelphia is depositing $1828.20 on September 24, 1851. By Robert C(aldwell). Pearson. Signed by HL Dunning for treasurer Edward C. Dale. Five deposits were made. The first for California and the next four for North Carolina. This is very interesting. Where did the California gold come from. Did Pearson try his luck in California and come back? Many southeastern miners did just that! Hand written note identifies the people (mines): California (state not company), Holly Burton (or Buster), Carson & Glass(?) and Hughes & David(?). Great pair! Official document in wonderful condition except where the pin was that attached the two pieces of paper together. Some bending on the bottom corners. Hand written note is torn irregularly and dog eared. Dale was the ninth treasurer of the United State Mint appointed by Millard Fillmore on December 16, 1850. On January 12, 1846 Dale became president of the Philadelphia, Wilmington & Baltimore Railroad. (Frederick Douglas made his escape from slavery on this railroad in 1850.)
