Beautifully engraved certificate from the Tombstone Consolidated Mines Company, Ltd. issued in 1903. This historic document has an ornate border around it with a vignette of the company's name in clouds with a sunrise. There are 19 unused coupons attached to the certificate that are not shown in the scan. This item has been hand signed by the company’s president ( E.B. Gage ) and secretary and is over 100 years old. E.B. Gage was a prominent mining engineer and entrepreneur and was one of the notable Tombstone residents from the early days of the towns mining boom. He was primarily responsible for the second boom in 1886 when he discovered a way to rid the mines of the flooding which ended much of the town's success in 1881. E.B. Gage also helped transform Tempe from a sleepy rural village and organized the Tempe Land and Improvement Company. He acquired a total of 705 acres of land from Charles T. Hayden and from The Mormon settlers who had relocated in Mesa. The firm surveyed and laid out the property in blocks and lots for sale. A real estate firm was engaged to promote the sale of land. Advertising pamphlets and a colorful view map by C. J. Dyer were prepared to enhance the prospects of settlers and investors.
