Extra rare and very early. Melones and Stanislaus Gold, Silver & Copper Mining Company incorporated October 29, 1862. Stock is # 1124 datelined San Francisco on August 17th, 1864. Issued to S. G. Bigelow. Signed by Ginzel Longdon and president J. D. Matterson. 25c Bond revenue stamp. Not cancelled. Mountain vignette. Drouaillet printer. Folds at corners, nick upper right at fold edge and some upper right border toning (hardly noticeable). In 1863 the trustees were Gariel Stevenot, BE Auger, E Cazalis, and AC Day. On April 27, 1863 the Sacramento Daily Union reported that the Meloes and Stanislaus had discovered richer quartz than had ever been discovered before in that famous locality at Carson Hill. Carson Hill, by the way, went by Melones and Stanislaus Flat in its early days!
