# 462 for 11 shares to LD Beck trustee. signed by LD Beck and president (?). Dateline New York 1881. Two underground mining vignettes. Printed by The Hatch Litho company. Not cancelled. A few pinholes, otherwise quite nice looking. Silver was discovered in the canyons and ridges south of Parleys Park as early as the mid 1860s, and the mining camp that grew up around the silver strikes took the name of Parley's Park City. The ore being mined was a combination of lead, silver and gold, known as galena, and smelting was required to separate the metals from each other. The first large shipment of galena was forty tons that were shipped by wagon to the railroad at Echo in 1871, where the ore was transferred to rail cars and taken by Union Pacific to Salt Lake City for smelting! [utahrails.net] It wasn't until c1900 the name was shortened to Park City. Although they had the right name - there seems to be no production from this mine!
