Number 86 for 100 shares to Walter A Hamlin trustee. Dateline New York 1880. Signed by Hamlin and president HH Honore. Incorporated 1880. Printed by American Bank Note Company. Not cancelled. Two vignettes: underground mining and dog. Two pin holes are all that mar this cert. The original Patagonia was purchased from a Mexican back in 1858. Raymond reported that the Patagonias and Cerro Colorado were the best known mines in the county. When one of the old mines was cleaned out, two sacks of silver worth $7,000 was found. Skeletons were also found which lead to the story that the miners held up in here until they were murdered by Indians. Mines in this area are reported to go back to 1650 and are suppose to be the Planchas de Plate which contained about 5 tons of prime silver. Accounts are given in Mexican chronicles.
