Very rare. Inc. in New Jersey. No. 309, issued for 1,000 shares to HS Twining on June 8th, 1882 in Camden. Signed by president Richard Donovan and treasurer Hassell. Not cancelled. Attractive design with black border and print, fancy title, and two small vignettes (dog and two children). Printed by National Bureau of Engraving, Philadelphia. Pinholes, folds, creases, and areas of heavy toning along top edge. 6 x 9" Not in Filer or other Holabird indexes. The mines owned by the company are the Orlando, Saginaw, and Bay City (printed into the title). According to an article in The Times-Philadelphia (May 20th, 1881), the company "was in receipt of the most encouraging report from their superintendent, Mr. George S. DuBois, now at the company's mines in Colorado. He says: 'I have worked on the Orlando Mine and find it improving very much. Besides the free gold streak we now have a twelve-inch streak of smelting ore that looks good and very much the same as we have in the Golden Age Mine." There are two "Golden Age Mining Companies" listed in C&L: Boulder County and Gilpin County. Newspaper reports indicate a Golden Age Group being located in Boulder County. By 1883, C&L report that the Golden Age Mining Company owns the Golden Age Mine on Golden Age Hill, two miles from Jamestown in the Central Mining District. Claim discovered in 1875. Developments include 300 ft. shaft and 2,000 ft. of other workings including a 20 stamp mill in Jamestown. [C&L, 1883, pg. 57]
