This small sized silver company stock certificate measures 4 x 7.25". Number 538 issued to George A Worthen for $100 (NOT SHARES). Signed by president Thomas Minton(?) and George A Worthen as secretary. 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.
