Arizona Territory, (Inc. in West Virginia with offices in Washington, D.C.), 1888. 1000 Shares Capital Stock I/U Certificate, Green printing with gold underprint, Mountain view of Arizona at top right corner and map of Arizona as underprint, S/N 599, VF to VF+ condition, Printed by A. Gadney. The Muni Mountain district is located on the slopes of the Grand Wash Cliffs in the Music Mountains. Here a few prospects were located in the mid-1880 s within a limited mineralized area. The Gold Mining Company was the most important of the prospecting groups, working the Ellen Jane and Tommanotto. The work performed by this company appears to be of a prospecting nature. When they were reorganized in 1892, the new venture mined and processed 700 tons of ore at their mill. The mine was worked by lessees through the first part of the twentieth century until 1915 when the Lucknow and Music Mining Co. began further prospecting after tying up all the good properties in the district. The map and vignettes on this certificate tell all the story. The upper right corner of the certificate has a vignette drawing in gold of the mine site. The underprint of the entire certificate is a map showing the location of the mine and its relationship to neighboring mountains, railroads, stage routes, and mining camps. The Ellen Jane mine was accessed from a stage coach US Mail route that ran northwest of Hackberry, a community southeast of the Ellen Jane. The Ellen Jane and Tommanotto mines are nestled in the Music Mountains below Shipman Peak. The Atlantic & Pacific Railroad line is shown on the map as well, which stretches from south of Mineral Park eastward through Hualapai, Hackberry, and Truxton. The company was unable to produce significant quantities of precious metals to keep afloat. This extremely rare, extremely fine certificate was used for the cover of Garbani's book because of its unusually attractive and artistic art work. Few certificates in America display this degree of artisanship.
