Very early number 8. For 10 shares to F Cooper. Signed by J Warren Clark and president GH Parsons. Dateline San Francisco October 1863. Incorporated September 1863. Not cancelled. Small 5c and 20c revenue stamps. 'Union' female vignette. WB Cooke & Co. printer. Only one small rip at fold bottom. Otherwise no edge, corner, pin hole or discoloration issues. Extremely nice. Frank Cooper was one of the original Commissioners charged with designating the election precincts in newly-formed Alpine Co. We have seen Parsons name several times as a secretary, but never as a president. J. Warren Clark was also secretary of the El Dorado Gold & Silver, Silver Prize G&S, Mammoth G&S, Tip Top G&S, Napa G&S, George Washington G&S, Sierra Nevada G&S, etc. Parson was president of the Mountain Oak and stockholder in the Crescent at Silver Mountain.

Division of Mines & Geology listing in "Mines and Mineral Resources of Alpine County" by William B.
