$1000 5% gold bond. Signed by president Robinson in 1897. Not cancelled. Mining vignette. #555.  60 coupons attached to top.

Organized in 1897 by Colorado railroad magnate David Moffat as a new branch of his Florence & Cripple Creek RR. Ran from Canon City to Cripple Creek thru Victor. Began by connecting the Florence & Cripple Creek Railroad to Canon City since Moffat was not receiving the land in Florence he needed for additional tailings processing facilities. Finding more support in Canon City, Moffat moved the Florence & Cripple Creek RR headquarters to Canon City and incorporated the new branch as a subsidiary, the Canon City & Cripple Creek Electric Railway. The line was placed into operation in 1900 and abandoned in 1912. City: Cripple Creek State: Colorado0
