Rare and very early. Number 113, issued for 20 shares to Martha Barker on May 17th, 1859. Signed by secretary WIlliam Danforth and president Josiah Barker. Not cancelled. Unusual underground mining vignette! Folds, very nice condition. 6 x 10.25" "In 1854 Samuel and Maria Williams of Brooklyn, New York purchased 21,371 acres of land in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia for $4,750. One year later the land was passed on to the Virginia Cliff Copper Company for $1,000,000, although only $7,000 was ever actually tendered. Soon 5,371 acres of the tract were sold to the newly incorporated (January 1858) Stony Man Mining Company for $550,000 of stockholder funds. In 1866, the Miners Lode Copper Company (incorporated in NYC in 1865) purchased the property." [nps.gov] Today this is all part of the Shenandoah National Park and Skyland. VF. Uncancelled.
