1895 Victor Gold Mining Stock Certificate. Attractive Cripple Creek Colorado mining scripophily certificate with vignette of miners taking a break by an ore cart. Looks like a bond, but actually similar to a preferred stock -- one that is designed to pay dividends (which it did). Company's mines included the Victor, Little Joe, Panther, and Victor #2, all situated on Bull Hill. A successful operation with gold production of over $2 million up to 1900. Interesting and unusual certificate. Written in English and French, this historic scripophily certificate represents significant foreign capital investment in the Cripple Creek District. VF+ condition.
Purchasing Notes: Payment by check or PayPal. You can opt out of insurance, which I generally recommend. Ruby Lane strongly encourages insurance. However, this may not make sense on scripophily shipments (which are not exactly breakable). My experience in mailing thousands of packages is that less than one out of 500 packages does not arrive in good condition. Still, Insurance is recommended on orders over $100. On multiple certificate orders Ruby Lane does not compute the insurance charge correctly. I will correct overpayments, but it is best to get accurate order amount before paying. Do not hesitate to email me if you have any questions.
