We could find little information about this company. THe stock was issued in 1856. It was printed in New York and has 'New York' written across the bottom. Above that it says 'Virginia, Sic Semper Tyrannis' which makes it most probably Virginia Gold Rush. Number 438 issued to DW Vaughn & Company for 500 shares. Signed by secretary James E Place and president Marcellus Eells(?). Two mining vignettes: miner climbing ladder underground on left and underground miner with a pickaxe top center. One pin hole top left. Otherwise in excellent condition. Not cancelled. Small orange seal. (Al Adams Gold Rush Memorabilia Collection) Date: 1856 Location: Virginia HWAC# 57312
