Very early #19 for 7,000 shares to William Ward. Nice vignette in the lower right-hand corner of a miner swinging a pick with the text "Bodie Dist./ Mono County, Cal." Printed by Britton & Rey, San Francisco. Reverse is signed by William Ward and has some pencilled tallying in tabular form at one end. Measures 9 3/16" x 4." The Handly Mining Company's mine was located between the Goodshaw and the Bodie (to the south) and covered an area of 1,500 feet by 100. It "ranks as among the earliest locations made in Bodie'" and the "title is complete and unquestioned." In 1878, a vertical shaft had been sunk 70 feet and the ore was carrying from $300 to $400 a ton in gold.
