Inc. in New York July 1879. No. 452, issued for 1,604 shares to Georgie Brown on April 18th, 1884. Signed by Frank Brown, president, and L.P. Hoyt. Not cancelled. Mine/mill vignette and fancy logo. Printed by ABN.Pinholes, folds, and some other light wear. Overall very nice. 7 x 10.5" Not in Filer. Bassick City was founded in 1877 when E.C. Bassick discovered a rich outcropping on his way home from working for the Centennial Mining Co. on Tyndal Mountain. He took out more than half a million in gold and silver before selling to an Eastern company. The Bassick Mine was one of Colorado’s richest, deepest, and most advanced gold mines for its time (1877-1885). They built a mill to treat gold ore, fluming the tailings into an adjacent creek for disposal. The town peaked in 1882. It is a ghost town today.
