Signed by one of the "Big Four"

I have not listed this one on my website. Relatively common with a Cox rarity of R4. It is not cancelled and dated Aug. 11, 1890. It is signed as president Collis P. Huntington. Hopefully anyone with an interest in American railroad history knows this gentleman. If not check this link out Collis P. Huntington .

This is an interesting example with dividend coupons. I have not seen a common stock with dividend coupons before. One word about this piece it is glued to a cardboard backing. It was at one time in a frame! My most hated way to display a stock certificate. For this reason I bought it at a reduced price. It is available for sale or trade.
