The photos of this exceptional stock certificate ultimately describe the condition of this early wild west RR stock from 1857. The vignettes are of the time period in the American west where this RR was operating. The paper is crisp, NO tears, minor hard to see folds, perfect for framing. It measures 7.25" x 10.25".
You can screen print, crop and print that if you want and include it in the frame with the stock certificate. If you don't have the ability to do that, I can send it with your certificate, let me know. This historical stock certificate is signed by A.Flagg as Treasurer and John A. The Mississippi and Missouri Railroad is important because of its owner, Thomas C. Durant, one of the men responsible for the U.
Durant founded the Mississippi and Missouri in 1853. The railroad was corporately linked to the Rock Island Railroad, which built the first railroad bridge across the Mississippi River in April of 1856. However, construction was slow under Durant's ownership, and the line ultimately terminated in Kellogg, Iowa, 40 miles east of Des Moines, Iowa in 1865, or only halfway across the state.Durant's main reasons for owning the Mississippi and Missouri were to obtain ownership of the Union Pacific Railroad... Not to mention raking in obscene profits. Once he had ownership of the Union Pacific, Durant announced that the railroad would connect to the Mississippi and Missouri, the first in a series of stock manipulations that netted him and his friends millions. The Rock Island Railroad bought the Mississippi and Missouri in 1866 and completed the line to Council Bluffs in 1869.
