John Henry Devereux - Mercer Mining & Manufacturing Co - Stock Certificate
Years: 1875

John Henry Devereux (1832-86), Civil Engineer, Railroad Executive. Very attractive 1875 stock boldly signed by Devereux at front. It is interesting to note that Teddy Roosevelt was a stock holder in this company and for a time his important uncle Robert B. Roosevelt was President of this same company. Rare!!!

A stock certificate is issued by businesses, usually companies. A stock is part of the permanent finance of a business. Normally, they are never repaid, and the investor can recover his/her money only by selling to another investor. Most stocks, or also called shares, earn dividends, at the business's discretion, depending on how well it has traded. A stockholder or shareholder is a part-owner of the business that issued the stock certificates.
