3M - Minnesota, Mining And Manufacturing Stock Signed By Two Founders

1903, Minnesota. Stock certificate for 18 shares. GreenBlack. View of mountains with a smelting operation at center flanked by smaller views of miners at work in upper corners. Litho. If ever there existed a great American Corporation that should have failed in its early years, 3M is certainly it. Founded in 1902 by five Minnesota businessmen in the small town of Two Harbors, the company was formed to mine corundum, an ideal mineral for making sandpaper and grinding wheels. As mining and product sales were underway, the mineral turned out to be a lower quality mineral, causing poor product quality and sales. On the brink of failure, the company founders closed their mine, moved the company to Duluth, Minnesota and began the manufacture of sandpaper with abrasive materials purchased from outside sources. This certificate is signed by two of the company's founders, HENRY S. BRYAN, the first president of the company who had been involved in the railroad business, and JOHN DWAN, first secretary of the company and a local attorney. A superb early certificate signed by two founders of one of America's most dynamic corporations. Stamp cancellation not affecting signatures. Extremely Fine.

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!

 BOUDINOT, ELIAS

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.

A Possibly Unique And Historically Significant Spanish Trading Company Stock Certificate Issued To The Queen Mother Of Spain, The Nation’s Most Powerful Woman Of The Period

1766, Spain. One share. Engraved vignette of the royal arms of Guipuzcoa with an extremely ornate border design depicting an indian, female figure, fruits, weapons and plants as well as a number of boxes of the company’s freight. Printed on vellum. Attached embossed white seal which also depicts the Guipuzcoa royal arms. The Caracas company was formed by a group of merchants in the Guipuzcoa province near San Sebastian, in the Basque region of Spain. Its primary purpose was trading with the Caracas province of Venezuela as well as the development of agriculture and the oversight of Orinoco river to the Hacha river in order to prevent illegal trading by the Dutch from Curacao. This company was the first of the great spanish overseas trading companies and the first Spanish trading company known to have issued public stock. At 21 Elizabeth Farnese (1692-1766), the Queen consort of Spain, was married to Philip V of Spain. Exerting great influence of the weak Philip, she strongly supported the policy of Alberoni, one aim of which was to recover the ancient Italian possessions of Spain (eventually both Sardinia and Sicily were seized by the Spanish). Elizabeth was such a staunch supporter of this policy that she even placed herself at the head of one division of the Spanish army as French forces advanced to the Pyrenees! Ultimately, Elizabeth's ambition was grievously disappointed. The Triple Alliance thwarted her plans, and in 1720 the allies made the banishment of Alberoni a condition of peace, and the Spanish were forced to abandon Sicily. In the end, all Elizabeth’s entreaties failed to prevent the abdication of Philip, who gave up the throne to his heir in 1724, and retired to the palace of La Granja. Seven months later, the death of the young king recalled Philip to the throne. During his declining years, Elizabeth directed the whole policy of Spain toward securing thrones in Italy for her sons. In 1736 she had the satisfaction of seeing her dreams realized with the accession of her son Don Carlos, later Charles II of Spain, to the throne of the Two Sicilies and his recognition by the powers in the treaty of Vienna. An important, early Spanish trading company stock and historically signicant issued to the most powerful woman in Spain at the time. Uncancelled and Extremely Fine.

Large vignette of loading dock at top center; dog's head at top left; clasped hands at bottom left. Litho. Signed as president by WILLIAM G. FARGO (1818 - 1881); Expressman.

Fargo became a partner in Wells & Company and, in 1850, they joined with two other express companies to form the American Express Company which covered the eastern sector of the United States; Wells, Fargo & Company, formed in 1852, covered the western sector. The outstanding success of the American Express Company brought with it many competitors, one of which was the very powerful Merchants Union Express Company and, following a fierce competitive struggle, the Merchant's Union Express was consolidated into the American Express Company, the resulting company becoming the American Merchants Union Express with Fargo as president. A nice example of restructuring of a competitive industry in its early stages.

An Early Stock Certificate Issued To Elias Boudinot A President of Continental Congress And Signer Of The Peace Treaty Which Ended The War With Great Britain!

 BOUDINOT, ELIAS

 1817. Newark, New Jersey. Stock Certificate for 2 Shares. Black White.  7 7/8”  x 5 ¾ “. Issued to Elias Boudinot, the tenth President of Continental Congress. In 1806, the New Jersey General Assembly chartered the Essex and Middlesex Turnpike. Elias Boudinot’s brother and future Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of New Jersey Elisha Boudinot was a commissioner and majority share holder of the company from its onset. Elisha was among a group of New Jerseyans authorized to “receive subscriptions for erecting a turnpike road, four rods wide, from the east end of the bridge over the Raritan river at New Brunswick, through Elizabethtown to Newark, in the count of Essex…” The subscription of stock was authorized at 3,000 shares of $50 each. The goal of the turnpike was to both improve the New Brunswick to Newark road and to connect that road with the Trenton and New Brunswick Turnpike in New Brunswick. A Choice rarity displaying this important early political investing in the growth of America. 

 
 
BOUDINOT, ELIAS  (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 singed the Treaty of Paris while in office as President of the Continental Congress 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.

An Extremely Early California Gold Mining Stock Certificate

1851, California. Stock certificate of the Enterprise Quartz Company. Issued at Nevada, California. November 21, 1851. Printed by Nevada Journal Print. The company was located on Kentucky Ridge, Nevada County. Gold was discovered around 1850 - 1851 on Kentucky Ridge by one of the early 49ers, George Roberts. It is possible that the signature on this stock, E. W. Roberts is a relative. The Kentucky Ridge saw the first Black slaves brought in for mining purposes. "These Afro-Americans came to Nevada County from Georgia as the slaves of Colonel William F. English. English reportedly was a Georgia planter who sold his plantation in 1850, then journeyed to Philadelphia, where he purchased a ship to transport machinery and workers to California to establish a mining enterprise." While we've been unable to connect the Enterprize quartz specifically with English's slaves, it is possible that they worked the company mine. Stock certificates dated 1851 from a California gold mine are quite rare and this offers a fine opportunity to acquire a piece of the gold rush. Folds. Fine.

Berkeley Water Front Company Issued To And Signed By John H. Spring Builder Of The Spring Mansion

1907, California. Stock certificate for five hundred shares issued to and signed on stub and verso by JOHN HOPKINS SPRING (1862-1933). American businessman who made a fortune in California real estate. . Blind embossed company seal. Revenue stamp affixed on verso. Pen cancellations do not affect Spring’s signatures. Shortly before the incorporation of the Key Route Transbay Ferry System, John H. Spring allied himself with Frank C. Havens, president of the Peoples’ Water Company, and Francis Marion“Borax” Smith, acting as their land agent in large purchases of suburban property at the time they were launching the Realty Syndicate. As real estate prices in Berkeley rose sharply following the 1906 San Francisco earthquake, Spring, who owned large amounts of land in Alameda County north of the Berkeley line, became very wealthy quite quickly, reaching a reputed net worth of $3 million. Aside from these lucrative ventures, Spring founded the Spring Construction Company, owned a quarry, and was a director of the Western National Bank of San Francisco and of the Berkeley National Bank. The Berkeley Waterfront Company, operating in the interests of the Santa Fe, bought up large portions of the Albany, Berkeley, and Emeryville shorelines in the 1890s. These lands remained largely undeveloped until the Golden Gate Turf Club built a racetrack on land leased from the Santa Fe in the late 1940s.

Bond Signed by Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna

1866, New York. $500 First Mortgage bond bearing 7% interest. Black/White with Green embossed seal. Oblong large folio. This series of bonds was issued by ANTONIO LOPEZ DE SANTA ANNA (1794 - 1876) with his properties in Verz Cruz, St. Thomas and New Granada pledged as collateral. Issued while he was in exile in Mexico, it was Santa Anna's intent to use the proceeds of this issue to finance his return to power, an effort which eventually failed. A wonderful ornate bond signed by the man who led the forces that attacked and destroyed the Alamo in 1836.

SANTA ANNA, ANTONIO LOPEZ DE (1795-1876). Mexican general and politician. Santa Anna is one of the most interesting figures in Mexican political history, having been President/Dictator of Mexico some 10 times during his career. He began in the Spanish Army fighting against Mexican independence but switched sides and helped free Mexico from Spanish rule and install its first emperor, when it was in his interest to do so. Not content with his reward in this effort, he dethroned the emperor, and installed himself as the head of government. In 1836, he attempted to put down the revolt of U.S. citizens living in Texas who wanted Texas to join the U.S. He is best known in the U.S. for his slaughter of many Americans at the Alamo during this struggle. Soon after the Alamo, he was defeated by Sam Houston at San Jacinto, and Texas was granted its independence. After this, Santa Anna was in and out of power - and in and out of Mexico - for the rest of his life. He returned to Mexico in 1874 for the final time, and died in poverty in Mexico City.

Founder of Revlon.Upon his failure to secure the job of national distributor in the cosmetics firm where he worked, Revson convinced his brother and Charles Lachman, a chemist, to start their own business, Revlon Cosmetics. They specialized in nail polishes in a greater variety of colors than was available elsewhere, and sold them first through salons then through department stores. Eventually they introduced matching lipsticks, and introduced marketing innovations such as exotic names for the products' colors. Though Revson's perfectionist personality drove his partners to quit by 1965, the business was phenomenally successful under his leadership, first as president (1932-62) then as chairman (1962-75). Today the company stands as one of the world's leading cosmetic firms. Printed facsimilie signature of Juan Trippe. A seldom seen autograph of this important American business figure.

His pyramid of holding companies collapsed due to the combination of his highly leveraged position and a September 1931 stock market crash. In April of 1932, the top Insull companies went into receivership, thus ending the reign of one of America's leading symbols of prestige and business success of the 1920's.

Cody's Wyoming Coal Company

 CODY, WILLIAM F.
1904, New Jersey. Stock Certificate #72 New Jersey for 5 shares. Issued to and signed twice by WILLIAM F. CODY, (1846-1917). Scout; Showman. For a short period following the Civil War, Cody was employed by the Goddard Brothers, food contractors to the Kansas Pacific railway construction camps, to furnish Buffalo meat and from whence his nickname came. From 1868-1872 Cody did scout service for the army, eventually becoming chief of scouts for the 5th Cavalry. He was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor for gallantry in action on the Platte River in 1872, but this was revoked by Congress in 1917 due to the fact that Cody was not a member of the military at the time of the award. In 1872 he began his long career as a showman, appearing in numerous "Wild West" shows in the theatre, at least one with "Wild Bill" Hickok. The formation of his famed Wild West Show in 1883 that toured the U.S. and parts of Europe has forever made the name "Buffalo Bill" legendary. Excellent.
