Wow! Inc. in Pennsylvania, 1867. Low number 11, issued for 500 shares to Charles Silver on January 16th, 1868 in Philadelphia. Signed by president HH Fitzgerald, secretary Silver, and the treasurer. Not cancelled. Black border and print. Fantastic vignette showing the inside of a stamp mill! Printed by Wm. Mann, Philadelphia. Pinholes, folds, toning. 6.25 x 10.5" This company is a mystery to us. These pieces are very rare, and the few we have sold before we have never been able to firmly locate. No articles found on CDNC or newspapers.com. The exact location is a mystery still. There was an Empire Mine on the Comstock and in White Pine County. There was also a Gem Mine in White Pine County (Raymond ,1870). Perhaps this points to this being a White Pine County piece?
