in 1910. This historic document has an ornate border around it with a vignette of of a Victorian Woman, a man working, a river scene and an eagle holding a banner that says "There's Millions in it". This item is hand signed by the Company's President M. J. Hopkins. This certificate is over 111 years old. The print is in copper and is one of the most beautiful certificates we've seen. According to Lee Degood's Michigan Copper Mining Book, there are are only 4 of these certificates known to exist.
As reported in the Mines and Mineral Statistics Book in 1903
COPPER CROWN MINING COMPANY. Reports from the Copper Crown Mining Company's property are very encouraging. A new air compressor has already been received and another is in transit. Nearly all plans and specifications for the 500 ton stamp mill is nearly ready, with $50,000 in the treasury, or due the company for stock already sold, and all debts of the company are paid. New buildings are being erected for the men, preparatory to beginning the erection of the stamp mill. It is hoped to see the Copper Crown property on a paying basis within 12 to 15 months. Capitalists are becoming much interested in the property, and altogether its future is very bright. We hope that such may prove to be the case, as it has a lot of enterprising gentlemen behind it who are certainly entitled to success.
