Grant as president. Price - $146

Corporate seal punched clearly into lower-left. Uncommon stock design. Although incorporated in Arizona, this mining operation was located in Mexico.

1917 HARROUN MOTORS CORPORATION - Incorporated (in 1916) Under the Laws of Delaware - This company was started by Ray Harroun, winner of the very first Indy 500 in 1911! Harroun Motors produced only about 2,500 cars in its short history. Issued to Lewis J. Harris for 20 shares worth $10 each. Signed by John Guy Monihan as president and Lewis Hopkins Rogers as secretary. In my research, I found that Ray Harroun was listed as the vice president, so the certificate does not include his signature. Printed by the Columbian Bank Note Co. of Chicago.

I found an old announcement online (right) that shows what the actual car looked like. In my opinion it was quite classy.
