Our book on Nevada Territory Mining Stocks, 1861-1864
A Treasury of Mining Stocks from the Nevada Territory, 1861-1864
Published by Norrico Inc., 1996.
The largest compendium to date of old mining stocks, thus an important reference work. It has 300 indexed photocopies (black and white). Image quality varies since many of the copies were made under "field" conditions. On the cover is pictured an 1863 stock certificate from the Jackson Gold and Silver Mining Co. This certificate was issued to and signed by Samuel L. Clemens (Mark Twain) and is the only stock known from his very earliest days as a writer in Virginia City. There is a short history of how Nevada became a state and a discussion of why October 31, 1864 is a key Nevada collecting date. It also contains a brief "Introduction to Collecting Stocks and Bonds." There are 183 pages, 8-1/2" x 11".
