Lot of two. 1) #247 for 5,000 shares to AE Kimball trustee on June 29, 1911. Signed by president George Watt. Vignette of the Grass Valley Ranch in Lander County, Nevada. Folds with small nick at bottom right. No other issues - extremely fine. 2) Unissued #287. Extremely fine. "The condition of all these Forests is bad so far as forage is concerned. The Toiyabe range has been badly overgrazed as a whole....In former years these ranges were occupied solely by cattlemen. In those days the usual local agreements as to the division of the range were in existence and were recognized. Then came the pioneer sheep man with a small flock, and after him came others, until within the past few years the cow man has been practically driven from the range." [1907 letter written by forest supervisor Mark Woodruff - probably]Despite the cattle ranch vignette, the Land County Live Stock Company and George Watt made up well over 50% of the sheep.
