Pande Basin Gold Placer Co., Issued Stock, - Alaska, 1898, 500 Shares, Issued and uncancelled, Black on green, eagle vignette, VF condition, S/N 628, Incorporated in WV, Issued to and signed by M.L. Muhlemann as Trustee, Rare early Alaska gold rush certificate. The Pande Basin is near Sitka on Baranof Island, off the coast of the southern part of Alaska. Very probably a scam business deal with an 1899 newspaper account of the shareholders revolting against the management and the mention (sarcastically) that all of the gold probably slid into the lake during the tunnel excavation.
