Pictured above is a very rare Civil War Era ATLANTIC & GREAT WESTERN RAILROAD Co. Stock Certificate dated 1863 and signed by MARVIN KENT, President. Kent was from the village of FRANKLIN MILLS, Ohio which changed its name to KENT in 1864 in honor of the great contributions that he made to the community. He was the co-founder of the ATLANTIC & GREAT WESTERN RAILROAD and held the main offices in KENT. The certificate is about 11.75″ x 7.75″ and in very good condition with normal folds (please view the close-up photos for a better description). Each of the three Revenue Stamps are canceled by the A & G W Railroad and dated November 5, 1863. Kent’s signature is found in two places on the certificate. I have also included a letter dated 1887 addressed to the same person that the certificate was issued (Ralph Mason of Hartford, Ohio) as provenance. This is quite a rare item with much historical significance and several great vignettes printed in 1857 by Bald, Cousland & Co.
