# 435 for 5 shares to Benjamin Hall. Signed by secretary Benjamin Hall and president George W Paget. Dateline San Francisco 1864. Incorporated May 15, 1863. Allegorical vignette. 1400 shares at $500 each - quite steep! Paper is dark, but easily read. Small 5c and 20c revenue stamp. Heavily faded. Green revenue imprint type art work on reverse. Torn in half and taped. Rips and heavy discoloration throughout. Paget was heavily involved in politics - especially for the Union! In 1870 he was held to answer before the Grand Jury on three charges of Grand Larceny. In August of 1864 Hall was listed as being delinquent on paying assessment on a certificate for this company. This is another mining company that seemed to collect assessment and not deliver a paying product. State: California City: Placerville District, Eldorado County Date: 1864
