Extra rare. Great name! Location of Mines: Ogilby Mining District, San Diego Co., California (printed at upper left). Inc. in West Virginia. No. 130, issued for 6,000 shares to Chas. Gill on Sept. 19th, 1887 in New York. Signed by president John Brodsky and secretary Wm. Riddle. Not cancelled. Green border and print, underground mining vignette. 6.75 x 11.25" Pinholes, folds. According to E&MJ, Vol. 43-44, 1887, the company owned the Little Mary, Little Mabel, Three Sisters, Little Pete, Alice, May, Christmas, and January mines. On December 14, 1884, Gold Rock miners held a meeting that formally established the Ogilby Mining district and christened their settlement Gold Rock Camp. Approximately twenty mines operated in the Gold Rock District. By the late 1880s surface ores were all but exhausted. Faced with increasingly greater expenditures to pursue deep rock mining, Gold Rock operators sold out. [https://sandiegohistory.org/journal/1996/april/cargo/] Ken Prag Collection
