Lot of 2. 1) Stock no. 9113 issued for 10 shares to Jas. Coffin on Dec. 23, 1878 in SF. Signed by vice-president William A. Schultz and secretary Joseph Gruss. Not cancelled. Pinholes, folds. Printed by GT Brown, noted African-American lithographer. 4 x 9" 2) Assessment receipt for the company and the certificate issued to Coffin. The Bullion Mine, staked in 1859, was located 1/2 mile north of Gold Hill on the north side of Bullion Ravine. It was promising property because it had rich Comstock mines on either side: the Chollar-Potosi and Consolidated Imperial. The Bullion absorbed the Corser, Eastern Slope, Wellington, and Fairview claims; 944 ft. total. No recorded production, even though the mine was operated from 1862 to the early 1900s. John Mackay was first a trustee of the mine in 1863, then superintendent in the late 1860s. As a trustee, Mackay teamed up with J.M. Walker, who took on the role of supt. Unfortunately, even Walker and Mackay could not make it profitable. Before giving up, Mackay had the mine explored to a depth of 1,400 feet.
