An extremely important Early American
Lottery Ticket for the company founded by Alexander Hamilton. In Paterson, NJ. The document is signed by Jonathan Rhea,
Colonel during the American Revolution.
Chiefly designed by Alexander Hamilton, the “S.U.M.” was established to
harness the tremendous power of the Passaic Great Falls and spark the
industrial development of manufacturing in the young nation. The S.U.M. hired Pierre Charles L’Enfant to
design the largest, most significant power system at that time, one that
diverted water from the Passaic River above the falls to mills along its
route. It was the boldest private
enterprise ever conceived in the early days of the United States. Hamilton envisioned an industrialized America
and the creation of a raceway system was his ambitious example of how
corporations could be organized to develop manufacturing on a grand scale to
compete with Great Britain and Europe.
A fine example of one popular method of financing during the early
industrial development of the capital markets in America. Ornate border design Choice condition. This is a very scarce note from an issuer
important in the industrial history of America.
