A Fine Association Of Russell Sage And Jay Gould Signing On The Same Stock Certificate

1880, Texas. Stock certificate for 100 shares. Green/Black. Engraved vignette of cattle at watering hole. Issued to and signed on verso by RUSSEL SAGE RUSSELL SAGE (1816 - 1906). Banker; financier; congressman. As the originator of "put and call options", Sage greatly changed the way speculators played the stock market. Among America's most powerful and wealthy bankers, he financed Jay Gould and made a vast fortune on the latter's stock manipulations. "Sage was one of the shrewdest and most conservative of all great financiers." (DAB) At one time he is said to have had $27,000,000 out on call loans. At the time of his death he left a fortune worth an estimated $70,000,000. Also Signed as president by JAY GOULD (1836 - 1892); Railroad magnate; Financier; Stock market manipulator. Gould began his rise by gaining control of a small Vermont railroad in 1860 at the age of 24. Over the next 10-15 years he made a fortune by buying and selling railroads and manipulating their stock. His most famous railroad battle came in the late 1860's when, along with Jim Fisk and Daniel Drew, he struggled for control of the Erie Railroad against "Commodore" Vanderbilt. Gould went on to become "the most hated man in America" when his attempt to corner the gold market caused a panic termed "Black Friday" in September 1869. Turning towards western railroads in the 1870's, he came to own or control numerous roads, including the Union Pacific and Kansas Pacific. It is estimated that he controlled about 10% of the railroad track in the U.S. by 1880. He went on to gain control of the Western Union Telegraph Company, and the New York elevated railroad. At his death, his fortune was estimated to be $72 million. Very light browning along top edge. A couple of small, light ink stains affect nothing. Paper thinning at top left near attached stub lightly affecting border. Stamp and punch cancellations, the latter affecting Gould's signature.

A Graphic, Early Stock Certificate Issued To Elias Boudinot - Tenth President of Continental Congress Serving in That Role When The Treaty of Paris Was Signed Ending The War With Great Britain!


October 2, 1811 , Pennsylvania. Stock Certificate for 1 Share. #307. Black White. 10 1/8 “ x 5 ¾ A lovely vignette at center. Issued to Elias Boudinot, the tenth President of Continental Congress. The Union Canal was a canal in the southeastern part of Pennsylvania in the 19th century. Although the canal was first proposed in 1690, construction did not begin until 1792 under the name Schuylkill and Susquehanna. With the newly born country struggling economically, the project was suspended in 1811. The canal could not be completed until 1828. Due to perpetual problems with flooding and railroad competition, the Union Canal closed in 1885. It is important to note that the line connected Philadelphia with Reading on the Schuylkill River. The line was very prominent in the transportation of anthracite coal to Philadelphia. It is significant to note that Elias Boudinot donated large tracts of land in Schuylkill County that held vast amounts of anthracite coal. A Choice rarity displaying this important early political investing in the growth of America.

ELIAS BOUDINOT  (1740-1821). Revolutionary statesman. Boudinot was a close friend of Washington's, and a tireless supporter of the Revolution and the fledgling federal government. Despite not signing the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or the Articles of Confederation, he is one of the more important political figures from the American Revolutionary Era. After serving as a delegate to the Continental Congress, Boudinot became the Secretary of Foreign Affairs. Due to his immense successes in dealing with the aid provided by France, Spain, and Holland, Boudinot was selected to be the 10th President of the Continental Congress in 1782. Boudinot was serving as President when the Treaty of Paris was signed in 1783. After he served as President, Boudinot was elected as a U.S. Representative from New Jersey in 1789. Although he retired after one term, George Washington appointed Boudinot to become Director of United States Mint. Boudinot held the position from 1795-1805.
