LUCKY NUMBER 13 for 98 shares to Frederick Jones. Signed by RF Glover(?) and FE Addoms as president. Dateline 1889. Not cancelled. Vignette of a cowboy lassoing a 4J steer. Other cattle on runing away. '4J' brand inside red seal. Printed by John Morris of Chicago. No edge, corner, pinhole or discoloration issues. Excellent. The 4J ranch was most noted for the dashingly handsome “Mexican” John Marroquin . He’d come to Wyoming with a trail herd in 1877 and worked for future Wyoming governor John Kendrick on the famed OW before starting with F.E. Addoms and R.F. Glover’s Four Jay Cattle Company in 1884. They had the cowboy that Kendrick called “the best roper on the range.” That would be Wyoming Hall of Fame cowboy Mexican John. By 1893, the 4J employed more than 100 men and ran cattle and sheep over 250 square miles from the Black Hills to the Big Horns. By 1906, the 4J Ranch was running 30,000 cattle and 33,000 sheep. It shipped 120 railroad cars full of cattle every two weeks. [Wyoming Cowboy Hall of Fame online] Prag Collection State: Wyoming City: Wyoming Cattle: Campbell County Date: 1889
