HORACE A. W. TABOR (Leadville, Colorado's legendary silver mining king) signed mining stock certificate, 1892

THE ANACONDA EXTENSION GOLD MINING COMPANY, of Cripple Creek, Colorado

Anaconda Extension GMCo 181.jpg (236366 bytes)

Mining stock certificate Issued August 18, 1892, uncancelled.  This is one of the very few -- probably less than 5 -- known certificates from this company known to be signed by H.A.W. Tabor as president and uncancelled.  Most of the mining stock certificates known from this company are cancelled and signed by other officers of the company.

Several folds, otherwise in very good plus condition.  Horace Tabor was Leadville's Silver King.  His history became Colorado legend.  Although Tabor had tied a significant amount of his wealth to silver mining, he was convinced by several of his business partners -- D.H. Moffat, Eben Smith, R.H Reid, O.H.P. Baxter, among others -- to diversify into gold mining properties.  And thus, he invested in this Cripple Creek gold mine, not far from Moffat and Smith's Anaconda Gold Mining Company.  This is a rare certificate, even more so when issued and uncancelled.
