Lot 194: Ornate 10.5 x 6.75 unissued Texas Association stock certificate for a share of 8,000 square miles on the Trinity River. As the Republic of Texas was short on cash and inhabitants, as well as the threat of Mexican invasion, companies were granted large tracts of land. In fine condition. A handsome document, highlighted by a small vignette at the bottom depicting a spear-wielding Indian hunting a bison. The Robert Davis Collection.
