San Francisco & San Joaquin RW Company Stock Signed As President By "The Sugar King" Claus Spreckels


1895, California. Stock certificate for 250 shares in the San Francisco & San Joaquin Valley Railway Co. Green/Black with orange overprint. Large vignette of steam locomotive at top center. Litho. Signed as president by CLAUS SPRECKELS (1828 - 1908); Sugar magnate. Following Spreckels' immigration to the United States from Germany to California, he became involved in the sugar business, soon thereafter realizing the possibilities of raising sugar in Hawaii. At his peak, Spreckels controlled upwards of 40,000 acres of cane producing land on the Island. The San Francisco and San Joaquin Railway was constructed by Spreckels in order to circumvent the transportation monopoly of the Southern Pacific RR, thereby ensuring a low rate for the transportation of his sugar cane. Stamp cancellation not affecting Spreckels' signature. Extremely Fine.
