    Description

    Blodget Canal Company Stock Certificate 1 Share Feb. 1, 1799 Extremely Fine.
    A certificate for one share dated February, 1799 and signed as President by Samuel Blodget. Blodget was a merchant, manufacturer and canal builder. This canal was completed in 1807 at a total cost of $50,000 after a persistent effort by Blodget which involved lottery funding from both New Hampshire and Massachusetts. Uncancelled and an important artifact of the importance of canals in the early commercial infrastructure of the United States. At the left is a paper -covered wax seal, undamaged and wholly intact. The paper is cut into a diamond shape to perfectly cover the oval seal. First offered in our 2003 Central States auction.
