Back of Certificate
William F. Cody was a Western scout and later a showman. For a short period following the Civil War he was employed by the food contractors for the Kansas Pacific Railroad construction camps to furnish them with buffalo meat - hence his famous nickname. From 1868-72 he did scout service for the army, eventually becoming Chief of Scouts for the 5th Cavalry. In 1872 he began his long career as a showman, forming the Wild West Show which bore his name.
Cody had invested and supported several mining companies from the wealth he acquired from his Wild West Show. These investments turned out to be more of a financial quagmire than boom.
