Two RARE San Francisco City Stocks Certificates. Signed by King James of William, John W Geary, PA Morse, CJ Tallant, and William Hooper. Both are glued on a piece of paper, back-to-back. Both have all of their coupons. All coupons have been redeemed and the stock itself has been pen cancelled in red. These are for stock certificates number 1968 and 1969. John W Geary was the first mayor of San Francisco and the street was named in his honor. It is still a major San Francisco street today! In 1850 Morse was the Chief Justice of the Superior Court. Be sure to see other King James of William lots for more ephemera from this historically important San Franciscan (his murder in 1856 lead to the re-formation of the San Francisco Vigilance Committee) and and a biography. Paper and stock have condition issues (warping, foxing, some rips and tears), but is rare and historically importnant. Date: 1851 Location: San Francisco, California HWAC# 57349
