Cert. #67, issued for 200 shares to James McHaffie, the corp secretary and signed by Jno. Hanscom as president. Vignette of an Indian brave seated at left. The company was a consolidation of the three Kearsarge claims, located near the Cincinnati mine, 6 miles west of Middletown (C.S.M.B. Issue 78). In 1876, some of the Kearsarge company specimens showed native mercury, some of which could not be handled without globules of the metal rolling off (Scientific American, 1876). The most interesting specimens were some botryoidal masses of metacinnabarite, a very rare and comparatively new mineral, which was very nearly analogous to the black sulphuret of mercury of the laboratory. The certificate is in VF, uncancelled condition.City: County: LakeState: CADate:
