# 619 fir 1000 shares to CE Gillette. SIgned by president DA Bennuell and Thomas A Atkinson. Dateline San Francisco 1878. Incorporated October 1877. Location: Globe District, Pinal County. Not cancelled. GH Floto printer. Rubber stamped assessments on reverse striking through. Slight browning at margins. Very good. In the 1870's the Globe District was very active. Silver nuggets were being found in Richmond Basin with one as large as 60 pounds being circulated. Hinton states that the General Lee had a 6' vein of silver ore and was near the McMillan (also in this sale) about 20 miles east of Globe on the east side of Apache Mountain. The name probably refers to southern sympathizers, perhaps ex-soldiers from the Civil War. [Filer] Ken Prag Collection
