    William F. "Buffalo Bill" Cody - Cody's Wyoming Coal Company (Wyoming)
    This 1904 certificate for 25 shares is issued to and signed twice by William F. Cody, once as President and again on the verso, although the second signature is affected by pen cancellation marks.
    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. A nice companion piece to the Gordon Lille check offered in this section. Extremely Fine.
