The graphic design on public documents of the past turned even the most pedestrian of legal forms into art. This beautiful mine certificate issued by the Bonanza Mines Company of Colorado in 1919 would be stunning framed and hung in the office or den. From a capital stock of $250,000 one thousand shares were issued to a Frank Heilig in the amount of one dollar per share. Mr. Heilig kept the stock for a year before transferring it to one J.W. Ernest. A little research on both names, uncovered a Frank Heilig of Caney, Kansas who sat on the board of directors for the Kan-O-Tex Refining Company in 1909. Is it the same guy? Can't be sure, but the time frame works, as does the dual interest in mining and drilling.The certificate is in nice condition with the typical folds one would expect. There is a speck of wear at the top and bottom of each and a small, light stain on reverse side at a blank area, but nothing that would detract from its beauty. The golden company seal is raised.
