This small sized silver company stock certificate measures 4 x 7.25". Number 514 issued to Ann A Worthen for $100 (NOT SHARES). Signed by president Thomas Minton(?) and George A Worthen as secretary. Must have been issued to the secretary's wife! The original Kellogg mine was opened in 1840 south of Kellogg Creek by the South Western and Arkansas Mining Company, under a lease from Benjamin Kellogg. It was followed by several other mines on both sides of the creek; they all ceased operations before 1852. Operations in this period yielded up to 500 tons of lead-silver concentrate, valued at $90 to $100 per ton, all of which was shipped for processing to Liverpool, England. [Encyclopedia of Arkansas History & Culture online] See also Whitney Page 115. The company was incorporated in Arkansas in 1849. VF+. Writing on back bleeds through to the front. Small pinholes where it was endorsed on back. Very nice looking. (Al Adams Gold Rush Memorabilia Collection) Date: 1853 Location: Arkansas HWAC# 57317
