Rare printer's proof certificate with hand written notes from Eastern Shore Rail Road Company (MD-VA). On March 14, 1860, the company ordered 500 copies of this certificate from the printer, Clarks. This certificate is extremely rare. The Cox database lists one I/C certificate from this company sold at auction in the past 20 years, and at a very high price. Although this certificate is not issued, it is a unique piece in it's own right. The vignette shows an open cab locomotive pulling one car rounding the bend with workers to the side.
