SCRIPOPHILY - Wallace, Idaho

This stock certificate is for 50,000 shares in Empire Mining Company of Wallace, Idaho.  This collectible piece, an Uncancelled Stock Certificate, is dated August 30, 1974 and has three wonderful vignettes across the top.  The certificate (folded in third) was issued to Jerome Bunde and is a Very Low issue number, 111.  I personally bought this certificate from Jerome, a great man - I have video of him in his Wallace office on my blog. For those newer to the industry, Jerome still operates the Wallace Mining Exchange, one of the nations oldest, out of his office. A true mining legend. The certificate has some condition issues. There is surface paper missing, staple mark, dogears on one corner very minor staining and a wrinkle.  We grade it Good-.  Small pencil inscription in upper right corner.  Back is uncancelled - still a valid stock!
