Number 419 for 1000 shares to Peter Neeson in 1906. Signed by JT Holmshaw and Nescool(?). Two heavy folds and slight bend on bottom right corner. Printed by H.S. Crocker & Co., S.F.. U/C. Black ink on crème paper. No vignette. Location of mines, Bullfrog District. This company appears to be the same property as the Bullfrog National Bank, but we are unsure how they are related. They could be two different issues floated for the same property, which would be unethical promoting. The other possibility is that the company was a rip-off of the real National Bank property. John Cook, signing as president, would go on to create his own bank with branches in Goldfield, Beatty, and Rhyolite. [Holabird] "The Shoshone National Bank Mining Co. [in 1906] owns a group of fractions consisting of 66 acres extending from the National Bank north east through the dip on to the Montgomery and Rainbow Mountains. They have a shaft 50 foot deep and 50 foot cross cut. They have milling ore and stringers of manganese quartz but main ore bodies have not been encountered yet.
