Lot of 3. Key mine! Stocks no. 1, 2, and 177. No. 1 and 2 are both issued to Julian McCarty Little. None cancelled. Black border and print, gold seal, allegorical vignette of woman next to bear. Heavy folds, toning. 8 x 11" From mindat.org: "The Plumas-Eureka Mine is one of the most productive gold mines in the northern Sierra Nevada and the preeminent gold mine in Plumas County. Extravagant claims of up to $20 million have been attributed to the Plumas-Eureka during its lifetime from 1851 to 1942. However, most high estimates are unsubstantiated and tend to be associated with assertions connected with the mine's promotion or sale. What is reasonably clear is that during operation by the Sierra Buttes Mining Company, between 1872 and 1902, the mine produced approximately $7 million. Records preceding 1872 and after 1902 are unavailable." Ken Prag Collection
