    Description

    Henry Wells and William G. Fargo: Signed Stock Certificate. This 12" x 8.25" engraved stock certificate is for one share in the "American Express Company". It was issued on April 5, 1866, and signed by the President and Secretary of the company, Henry Wells and William G. Fargo, the same gentlemen who founded and operated Wells, Fargo & Company. The recipient was Frederick H. Phillips of Little Falls. It is countersigned by Treasurer Alex Holland. The graphics are quite outstanding, with a train, roundhouse, ships, delivery wagon, safe, cotton and crated goods, and a guard dog labeled "Safety & Dispatch." The paper has light brown discoloration, as shown. The signatures are very good.
