Stock Certificate, Keystone Mines, Amador City California, May, 12, 1915

I can’t imagine there was much left in the Keystone Mines in Amador City in 1915. This is another possible example of “mining by assessment.” This was a simple premise wherein the folks allegedly working on the mines kept hitting their investors for more money while actually delivering little more than a “dry hole.” Lots of mining fortunes were made this way. Pretty certificate though.
