    Lucky Dime Oil Company 50 Shares 1901. January 1901 saw the Spindletop oil well in Beaumont come in, thus unleashing the first Texas oil boom and the biggest in the country to date. It did not take long for companies and individuals to attempt to cash in on these opportunities. The Lucky Dime Oil Company was one of these. However, it did not last long and it took the financial dreams of many with it. This certificate was printed by Goes and it carries a nice vignette for this Chicago outfit, though a little out of place as the "hills of Galveston" will attest to. A couple of pinholes are noticed along with a minor edge split. Extremely Fine.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
