# 12543 for 5 shares to Lizzie A Waters. Signed by J Peal and president (?). Dateline San Francisco 1878. Incorporated August 22, 1865. Not cancelled. Shares $100 each. Different oval mountain mining vignette. G. T. Brown lithographer. G. T. Brown is San Francisco's legendary Black American lithographer. The Kentuck was one of the bigger Comstock producers reporting $5,763,295 production. In Gold Hill only the Yellow Jacket, and Crown Point reported more. "This mine is situated in the town of Gold Hill and constitutes a portion of the ground worked profitably with arrastras before the more northerly sections of the Comstock Lode were discovered. The surface rock here was rich in free gold and paid largely even when worked by the above simple means. The ores at greater depths having also produced gold equal to almost anything opened elsewhere on the great Washoe lode. The Kentuck occupies a position between the Yellow Jacket and Crown Point mines and is worked through the shaft of the latter."
