This is an original stock certificate for the Brooks Underground Telegraph Company. If I'm reading it correctly, this is the transfer of David Brooks' personal share of the company ($10,000) to his estate after his death in 1892. Adjusted for inflation, this would have been worth over a quarter of a million dollars.
