Description Extended Information
This scarce Osage Oil & Refining Company stock certificate was hand-signed and issued in 1919. The Osage Nation was forced from their homes in modern-day Kansas into what was then known as Indian Territory, now Oklahoma. In the early 1900s, oil was discovered on their land. The Osage owned communal mineral rights and many became quite wealthy after the discovery. Martin Scorsese's 2023 film, Killers of the Flower Moon staring Leonardo DiCaprio, depicted this discovery and the following struggle of the Osage Nation. This time was known as the Reign of Terror as many were manipulated and even murdered by outsiders who wanted to take over their oil and wealth.

Oil companies and speculators flocked to the region to cash in on the discovery. Many major oil companies got their start or made a fortune in Osage County including Phillips Petroleum, Conoco, Skelly and Carter Oil. The scale of growth in the region is unprecedented. In 1900, Osage County produced 6,000 barrels of oil. By 1914 it was over 11 million barrels.

Condition: As pictured. Slight splitting at the edge of the folds. Will frame nicely. Priced accordingly
