Number 74 for 100 shares to RK McGrath. Signed by CA Schnake and DC Kling. 1886. Three mining vignettes and fancy scroll work on left. Near perfect. Slight staining on right border and bottom right corner is rounded. "Arizona Copper Mining Company; the bad administration and the difficulties of transportation have been the main causes why this mine, so rich, and which created so much excitement in California two or three years ago, has not given any good results. Its oxides and copper sulphurets are excessively rich, the extraction exceedingly easy, and the veins are numerous. Works at this present moment are suspended. This mine is situated 120 miles southeast from Fort Yuma. It was opened in 1855, and the company was incorporated in San Francisco."
