Beautifully engraved antique stock certificate from the Wilson Oil Company dating back to the 1920's. This document, which is signed by the company Directing Trustee and Secretary, measures approximately 12 1/2" (w) by 9" (h).
The large vignette features an eagle clutching some arrows atop a shield.
The Wilson Oil Company was organized in Texas and had offices in Dallas.
The company, founded by Clay Wilson, operated the Smackover well in Moscow, Idaho.
The company appears to have been one of the countless Texas oil entities that tried to take advantage of the boom of the early 1920's by offering the promises of riches via strategically placed newspaper ads across the country.
There is no evidence the company ever produced.
