# 775 for 10 shares to BF Sherwood trustee . Signed by J. M. Buffington and president AK Harmon. Dateline San Francisco December 22, 1870. Incorporated June 27, 1867. 25c Certificate Revenue Stamp. Not Cancelled. Eagle Vignette. Britton & Rey printer. Small hole bottom right. No edge, corner or discoloration issues. Finding the exact location is problematic. But when this mine was incorporated San Francisco held sway over many Comstock companies. I found reference to the American Mining Company as early as 1867 in the Virginia Evening Chronicle. Buffington was a mining secretary in San Francisco for at least two decades. B.F. Sherwood was an early important figure on the Comstock. He was one of the original incorporators for the Gould & Curry Mine and a business associate of George Hearst. He was also supt. of the Central Mine. State: Nevada City: Comstock, Star District Date: 1867 (1870)
