CALIFORNIE. Action de F10 (3 Actions, no. 1 to 3), Sér.10814. black on orange paper. An example of a French company investing in the new California goldfields. In its prospectus, Aurifère said its F10 shares would surely earn F450 per year for 6 years, without counting 'extra dividends'. It bought 4 machines, each equal to 80 men, to work the new mines. Far from earning the expected big profits, the company seems to have disappeared by 1851/2. Most unusual to find an uncut strip of 3 shares.
