Inc. in Massachusetts. Cert. #42, issued in 1866 for 110 shares to Nathaniel G. Upham and signed by CN Howe as president and B. Sherman as treasurer. Two nice vignettes of a millsite in the hills and miners down the shaft at left. In 1865, J. Henry Allen and Charles Knapp, independently of each other, discovered free gold on the David Atwood estate in Lisbon. This led to the organization of the Lisbon Gold Mining Company in 1866. Most of the gold was within 20 feet of the surface and came to about $60 per ton. The company only produced about $300 and was not very successful. They then purchased one half of the Dodge mine at Lyman, about two miles away. A new company was formed to mine one half of the property called the Dodge Gold Mining Company (Report of the Geologic Survey of the State of New Hampshire, 1869). Very attractive certificate and mining stocks from New Hampshire are rare. This is a great discovery piece and might be unique.
