Rare early Nova Scotia gold mine! No. 632, issued for 50 shares to F.A. Arbault on Dec. 1, 1864 in New York. Signed by the president Anderson Nelson (?) and the secretary (Shirley). Not cancelled. Red corporate seal, no vignette. Two 25 cent adhesive revenue stamps. Printed by Macoy & Herwig Stationers. Folds, some chips to edges. 7.5 x 10" In 1861 gold was discovered in quartz veins on the Isaac's Harbour anticline to the east of the community in Goldboro, Nova Scotia. From J. Ross Browne, 1868: "Isaac's Harbor or Stormont district is advantageously situated upon one of the finest harbors upon the eastern coast and is about 20 miles eastward of the mouth of St Mary's river. This district has also been a large producer in proportion to the amount of effort that has there been put forth in mining but enterprises of that class have never yet been entered into upon anything like a large scale. The possibilities of the place may be imagined from the fact that taking the whole period since gold mining commenced in Nova Scotia we find that the mines of Isaac's harbor have kept up the largest average yield of gold per ton of quartz."
