THE PORTLAND GOLD MINING COMPANY

Issued 1895, cancelled, light folds, very light bit of staining on left border.  Condition: very good.  Signed by the discoverers of this highly significant Cripple Creek mining property: James F. Burns, as president; and, James Doyle, as secretary.  The most important issue on this 3-million ounce gold producer.  James Burns continued to live in wealth after the discovery of this property, and died in 1917.  James Doyle lost his fortune, attempted to regain wealth and status through a variety of mining ventures, but died in 1954 in modest circumstances.  W.S. Stratton and Verner Z. Reed, also owners of the Portland, died wealthy men.  (Certificate similar to that pictured above.)
