    Description

    Collis P. Huntington Chesapeake, Ohio & Southwestern Railroad Autographed Stock Collis Potter Huntington (1821-1900), railroad magnate, capitalist. Became involved with Leland Stanford, Charles Crocker, and Mark Hopkins (known as "The Big Four"). They financed a survey for the transcontinental route. The Central Pacific was completed to a junction with the Union Pacific in 1869. In 1890 he displaced Stanford as president of the Southern Pacific. He developed the Chesapeake & Ohio. Vindictive and untruthful, he felt railroads should never be burdened with obligations to the public. Gorgeous 1890 railroad stock signed as president. Superb signature barely affected by the cancellation. Includes a nice portrait and biographical information. Minor touch of glue at left border which is common. Still excellent condition. An important stock. Accompanied by COA from PSA/DNA.
