April 5, 2013
2020 Antwerp, BelgiumLive Auction
Description: CANADA-SOUTH DAKOTA. Shares of $1. green, gold, black, gold seal. No 2012. Many collectors consider this the finest of all mining pieces. It must be the most decorative, and is beautifully printed. The design shows the complete gold-mining process, from mining the ore to washing, to extract the particles of gold. It also shows many nuggets, and so much else. The reverse is entirely in gold-print; part is of angels riding on eagles. A classic among mining pieces, which has to be seen to be believed. Uncancelled. The company was formed in South Dakota, USA, but the mine itself was located in the Canadian Province of British Columbia. The Cariboo Gold Rush started in 1861 and is the most famous of the gold rushes in British Columbia. See also lot 1695. 9 June 1906
