CALIFORNIA. PARIS. Action de F5. black. #300000. No 10530. Formed in 1850 for 'exploitation of placers of California and the export of merchandise'. Fine vignette of miners digging in a river bed for the placer (alluvial) gold, with two Indians watching. Shareholders had the right to 80% of net profits, but virtually all of these companies never made a cent of profit (except for their promoters, maybe). Small format.
