Any remnants of the San Francisco Stock and Exchange Board prior to 1906 are exceedingly rare. In April, 1906 a 7.9 earthquake hit San Francisco and the subsequent fire lasted for days and destroyed over 80% of the city, including the Exchange.

The Bullion and Exchange Bank operated in Carson City, Nevada. They actually purchased the banking operations of Wells Fargo in Carson City in 1891. They were founded in 1875 as the Carson City Savings Bank and changed their name to the Bullion and Exchange Bank in 1882. They became the State Bank and Trust Company in 1903 and failed in 1907. They dealt in local banking in Carson City and mining stock trading.

The Stock and Exchange Board pre-dates the San Francisco Stock Exchange, which was founded in 1882, by 20 years. It was founded by forty members in 1862 after the discovery of the Comstock Lode in Nevada to trade in gold and silver. This trade ticket spans both regions, issued in Carson City, Nevada and executed in San Francisco.

The San Francisco Stock and Exchange Board rivaled the NYSE in volume by the 1870s and the area would become known as "Wall Street West". Their specialization in mining would prove problematic as the Comstock Lode began its decline and the neighboring San Francisco Stock and Bond Exchange delt with a wider range of securities and commodities. In 1927 they sold the name San Francisco Stock Exchange to the SF Stock and Bond Exchange and they would become the San Francisco Mining Exchange. The Exchange closed for good in 1967 after poor volume and an investigation into fraud by the SEC.

This one-of-a-kind trade ticket is presented in a gorgeous high quality acrylic display that weights over 3 lbs. Magnetically held together, the display is easy to open if want to inspect your item. Perfect for a desktop or bookshelf display.
